The leadership of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) says the release of the suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr Ibrahim Magu, from detention is a subtle means of deceiving the people.
The leader of MASSOB, Comrade Uchenna Madu, stated this in Enugu weekend. He claimed that Mr Magu was sustained as EFCC chairman by President Muhammadu Buhari to do the ‘biddings of the Sokoto caliphate and Fulani cabals that currently run the government of Nigeria’.
According to him, “Magu was loyal to his calling until Bola Tinubu, through the secret backing of Yemi Osibanjo, penetrated him to do his (Tinubu’s) services. Infiltration of Tinubu’s interest led to the unhealthy relationship between Ibrahim Magu and the attorney general of the federation who is also deeply involved in upholding the overall interest of the Fulani cabals and Islamic caliphate wrecking economic and political havocs to Nigeria.”
Madu alleged that Tinubu’s inordinate ambition for presidency in 2023 orchestrated the arrest, prosecution and detention of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu using the instruments of Magu’s EFCC. He warned that since the anti-graft agency remained a tool in the hands of a cabal in the presidency, it would remain a ‘hypocritical anti-corruption war against the unfavoured politicians, mostly the southern Christian politicians’.
He further stated that, “The recent release of Ibrahim Magu from detention and the sacking of some top officials of the EFCC are kangaroo drama of robbing Peter to pay Paul. Soon, Ibrahim Magu will be promoted.”
He also condemned a statement credited to Chief Arthur Eze that ‘Ndigbo are not united to clinch political powers in Nigeria’. In the words of Madu, “We need to clarify that Ndigbo are more and aggressively united in pursuing their common interest in every affair of our lives. We have proved severally about our unity in Nigeria during the sit-at-home exercises and massive demonstrations that shake the foundation of Nigeria. Our unity and coordination are being tested on our daily interactions with fellow Igbos in our respective town union affairs. Our political unity was shown to Mr Peter Obi during the last presidential election. It is some of our political leaders, like Arthur Eze, who always set their personal interests above the overall interest of Ndigbo, that create erroneous impressions to the Hausa-Fulani that Ndigbo are not United. We advise Engr Eze to always adhere to Igbo interests first before promoting Hausa-Fulani’s.”
