Magu eschew Question About ‘Bullion Van’ Petition Against Tinubu


Magu eschew Question About 'Bullion Van' Petition Against Tinubu

Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), evaded a question bordering on a petition against Bola Tinubu over allegations of bullion vans loaded with cash entering his residence.

Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has set tongues wagging after viral pictures on social media showed two bullion vans being driven into his Bourdillon residence in Lagos on the eve of the February 23rd presidential election.

In his response, Tinubu said the money in the vans was his and not ballot papers or money for vote-buying as alleged by some Nigerians.

“Excuse me, is it my money or government money? So, even if I have money to spend in my premises, what is your headache?” he said.

Meanwhile, Deji Adeyanju, an activist, had sent a petition to the EFCC, asking the agency to probe the matter.

However, while speaking with journalists on Friday at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja, Magu avoided answering any questions regarding the ‘bullion can’t petition.

“Do you expect me to respond on the petition? Next question, please,” he said.
