Further evidence has revealed how Ibrahim Mustafa Magu, the former acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) allegedly demanded for bribe to unfreeze a suspect’s account.

According to Denisaurus News, the Federal High Court in Abuja had ordered the EFCC led by Magu, to unfreeze the account of of Damjay Integrated Services Ltd, but instead of obeying the law, the suspended anti-graft boss refused and a request of N75 million was made for the court judgment to be adhered to.

The 58-year-old former acting chairman of the anti-graft agency, who is being investigated for fraud, diversion of assets and billions of naira, allegedly asked Donald Wokoma, the CEO of Damjay Integrated Services Ltd to pay the money in three tranches into three accounts associated to officials working with Magu, known as the “Magu Boys.”

Denisaurus News obtained communication held on WhatsApp with instructions of the said payment.

Victor Giwa, a barrister who allegedly negotiated the movement of the money to Mr Magu’s proxies, has now been arrested by security operatives.

Two recordings of Giwa passing instructions to his client on the process of payment to Mr Magu has been obtained by Denisaurus News.

Mr Magu, the only person to have been rejected as chairman of the EFCC, was described as a “perennial offender,” and a “liability” to the corruption fight of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Department of State Services, DSS, which wrote the indicting report against Mr Magu, which led to his rejection by the senate, also noted that he used fronts and proxies and he was living beyond his means.
