EFCC chairman, Magu snubs question on Ganduje bribery video

The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, on Monday refused to answer questions on whether the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, was on a probe.

Magu had invited reporters for a press conference in commemoration of his third year in office.

The acting EFCC boss had reeled out the achievements 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 simply said, “Next question please.”

The Kano State House of Assembly had begun investigations into the matter but was stopped by a court from going further.
