Alleged Fraud: Junaid Mohammed hits Malami over call for Magu’s sack

Junaid Mohammed, a Second Republic lawmaker, has berated the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, for calling for the sack of Ibrahim Magu, the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Malami had written a memo to President Muhammadu Buhari asking him to sack Magu over allegations of diversion of recovered loot, insubordination and disloyalty.

But in a statement on Sunday, Mohammed said the reason why Malami wrote the memo accusing Magu of the offences is due to his inability to control the EFCC boss.

He also called for an investigation into the claim that Magu allegedly sold most of the recovered assets by the EFCC without the knowledge of anyone, a.

Mohammed, therefore, advised Malami to resign and tender an unreserved apology to Nigerians and President Buhari if he feels uncomfortable working with Magu.

“Malami should urgently resign if he feels uncomfortable with Magu, a man hailed and feared by many crooked persons because of his unwavering disposition in the fight against graft.

“In his words, if he means that Magu should break the law and allow him (the AGF) to act arbitrarily and put his own consideration over the national consideration and provision of the laws; if he is not happy and he must have complained to the President and the President has not deemed it fit to remove Magu, Malami should have common sense and common decency to resign.

“After all, he is a political appointee. President Buhari would not sack one of them. But he, the AGF, should resign because he is the one who is unhappy by making such scandalous statements aimed at belittling Magu. But it is actually the President that he is belittling, not Magu.”
