13 Hilarious Tweets About The EFCC Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu

July 6, 2020

In a surprising and recent turn of events the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, has been arrested or “invited for questioning” by the Department of State Services (DSS).

It however seems like he has a record and has been on the DSS radar for years now. According to Sahara News, way back in 2010, the DSS found Magu guilty of withholding of EFCC files, sabotage, unauthorized removal of EFCC files and acts unbecoming of a police officer, all of which are actions prejudicial to state security. He was reportedly awarded severe reprimand as punishment. 

In 2016 another DSS report revealed that Magu was living in a N40m mansion. This accommodation was reportedly not paid [for] from the commission’s finances, but by a certain Umar Mohammed, air commodore retired, who himself is a questionable businessman who was subsequently been arrested by the secret service.

Magu also enlisted the Federal Capital Development Authority to award a contract to Africa Energy, a company owned by the same Mohammed, to furnish said residence at the cost of N43m. Further investigations show that the acting EFCC chairman regularly embarked on official and private trips through a private jet owned by the same Mr Mohammed and constantly flies first class when using airlines.

All evidence points to a beneficial relationship between Magu and Mohammed. With all this in view, one has to wonder why he was ever appointed acting chairman of a commission whose duty is to fight corruption.

He has occupied the position in an acting capacity for many years.

As has become the culture with every breaking news no matter the severity Nigerians took to twitter to air the opinions which most often turn out to be savage remarks and jokes;

1. Is that even allowed?

2. Seriously.

3. It’s not funny at all.

4. Yes indeed.

5. Fingers crossed.

6. He said what he said.

7. Insert tears.

8. Valid question.

9. Another valid question and relevant conclusion.

10. Omo.

11. It’s actually NOT funny.

12. It will be really hard to make these plot twists believable to future generations.

13. Busy putting 2 and 2 together.
