Ibrahim Magu Dodges Question On Ganduje Bribery Video

The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, on Monday refuses to answer questions on whether the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, was under probe over the widely circulated Dollar-bribe videos.

Magu had welcomed journalists for a press conference in celebration of his third year in office.

The acting EFCC manager had reeled out the accomplishments of the anti-graft agency in the last three years including a large number of convictions and recoveries.

However, during the question and answer session, Magu was asked to confirm if the EFCC was investigating Ganduje who was allegedly caught on camera collecting kickbacks from contractors.

He ignored it and simply said, "Next question please."

Funny enoug, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), had said the Kano Assembly was not competent to probe the governor, adding that only an anti-graft agency like the EFCC could do so. But now the EFCC is dodging the issue.
