A former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode on Sunday, July 12, claimed that the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu; and vice-president, Yemi Osinbajo are the real targets in the ongoing investigations into allegations against suspended chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.
Fani-Kayode made this bold assertion via a tweet, claiming that Magu allegedly used to work for the duo due to their status as ‘godfathers‘.
Alleging that Tinubu and Osinbajo were the godfathers Magu worked for, the former minister said that after the Federal Government finished with Magu that they would move against Tinubu and Osinbajo.
Fani-Kayode wrote, “What is happening to Magu today was planned years ago. The real target is not Magu but those he worked for and protected for the last 4 years. He NEVER worked for Buhari.
“He worked for Tinubu & Osinbajo. When they finish crushing him they will move against his two godfathers.”
A presidential panel is currently probing Magu over several allegations of corruption levelled against him.
Meanwhile, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami on Saturday, July 11; slammed reports that he bought a N300 million house for his newly wedded son, Abdulazeez in Abuja.
Equally important, this was contained in a statement issued by his spokesperson, Dr. Umar Gwandu.
Malami described allegations he bought a property for his son, Abdulazeez Malami, in Abuja as mischievous, deceitful, and perfidious.
Also, he disowned pictures and a video linked to the wedding of his son; saying the video in which some people are seen spraying money and flouting COVID-19 guidelines; had nothing to do with his son’s marriage.
Specifically, the minister’s son’s wedding Fatiha took place in Kano on Saturday, July 11, 2020.
Malami said the wedding occured under strict observance of the protocols and guidelines of the Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19.
The statement reads: “The attention of the Honourable Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami; SAN has been drawn to a mischievous, deceitful and perfidious publication by the notorious factory of fake news in Nigeria; the Sahara Reporters with an intent to spread lies.
