Former senator who represented the Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the 8th Senate, Shehu Sani, has said suspended chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, ran the anti-graft agency like a cult.
Sani said this on his Facebook page on Wednesday to celebrate the arrest and trial of Magu.
The former senator, who is been prosecuted by the EFCC, accused Magu of using some officers to carry out wicked operations and report solely to him.
Sani’s post read, “Contrary to the facade you see from the outside, the EFCC has been run by an inside cult called “the Magu Boys” or “the Chairman Squad.
“They are a select cream of vicious and cruel officers who operate exclusively and with impunity and only report directly to their boss.
“The inside cult is the dark and immoral aspect of the agency engaged in persecution, blackmail, frame-ups, and cruelty.
“The cult has been the wheel behind the ordeal of their embattled Boss.
“Until they are rooted out from the agency also, I believe a lot of revelations will be coming out from other marginalized and honest officers in the so-called anti-corruption agency.”
Magu is currently being probed by a presidential panel over allegations of misconduct and corruption.
He was suspended by President Muhamadu Buhari on Tuesday, pending the outcome of the investigations.
The probe followed a memo to the president, sad to have been written by the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
