Mohammad-Saeed Ibrahim-Magu, son of the immediate past acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has said that his father’s removal was a clear case of corruption fighting back.
He made this claim while receiving an award presented by the Northern Female Students Association to his father.
In describing his father as an achiever of excellence, Mohammed-Saheed noted that the former EFCC boss attracted awards across the globe due to his dedication to duty.
“My father was a victim of corruption fighting back, but I am happy that recent events are revealing the truth to Nigerians. The anti-corruption fight in Nigeria is a binding moral duty that requires seeing beyond political affiliations or preferences,” Mohammed said.
“Love him or hate him, Ibrahim Magu took the anti-corruption fight to uncharted levels that many people thought could never be attained.” He attracted continental and global commendations for tackling what had been described as the leading factor hindering the growth and development of African nations and economies.
Meanwhile, the First City Monument Bank has been ordered to pay Magu’s pastor, Emmanuel Omale, the sum of N540.5 million as damages over alleged defamation of character.
