The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu stunned Nigerians on Friday when he shunned questions from newsmen over the alleged cash-laden Bullion Vans linked to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s.
Magu who had an interactive session with journalists at the anti-graft agency’s headquarters in Abuja reportedly refused to answer a question on a petition for an investigation into the bullion vans.
It would be recalled that on the eve of the February 23, presidential election, photos of two bullion vans allegedly driven into Tinubu’s Bourdillon residence in Lagos went viral on social media.
The EFCC received a petition from activist, Deji Adeyanju on October 5, calling for a probe of what the bullion vans were used for.
The National chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) had reportedly explained that he had right to use his money the way he deemed fit.
When Magu was confronted with questions on the petition over the van, he declined answering the question and reportedly retorted: “You want me to talk about a petition here? Next question, please.”
