Magu Regains Freedom

The suspended acting chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, on Wednesday breathed the air of freedom after spending 10 days in police custody.

He was released shortly after the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, directed one of his lawyers, Tosin Ojaomo, to direct his bail applications to the Presidential panel probing his activities in office.

While speaking with The Nation, Magu still took his stand against corruption that it must be fought rigorously and he is committed to that, he said “Nigeria must own the war against corruption which President Muhammadu Buhari is determined to eradicate.”

He added: “As for me, I will forever wage war against corruption. I urge Nigerians to continue to support the fight against corruption, they should not give up on the fight because corruption kills a nation faster than any other thing.

“It is not a personal fight. Whether I am the EFCC Chairman or not, the anti-corruption war must continue.
