Nigerians Call On Buhari To Be Transparent, As FG Suspend EFCC Boss Over Corruption
Few hours after the news of the arrest of the embattled EFCC boss Ibrahim Magu, broke, Nigerians are calling on the federal government to be as transparent as possible in making sure the general public is carried along as event unfolds.
It could be recalled that the acting chairmen of the anti graft agency, was said to have being arrested by the men of the DSS on Monday for questioning over his romance with corruption.
It was also reported that the embattled acting Chairman allegedly slept in the police custody after being squeezed by the panel.
Reacting to the recent development, Nigerians have taken to social media to ask that Magu be made to face his crimes and that the Buhari led government should not only suspend him but hand him over to the agency for proper trials.
News coming in confirms however that Mr Magu, has been asked to step aside while he clears his name of any corruption allegations on his person.
Below are some of the tweets from concerned Nigerians:
We don’t just want hear that magu was suspended we want to see his mugshot and handcuffs on his hands… we want equal justice. Ordinary Nigerians will steal Garry una go kill am. When politicians go steal billions una go say una suspend am… Abi how una see am ? pic.twitter.com/MqbwPW286A

On Sunday evening, I said that under General @MBuhari, corruption is now official. A few minutes ago, I was vindicated, as the corrupt General Buhari himself just suspended Ibrahim Magu, the Chairman of the @OfficialEFCC, for corruption#BuhariTormentorhttps://t.co/28NZhskK2n

Just as Magu directed that I be placed on "Watch-list" even when I had immunity as a sitting gov, Magu too must be placed on watch-list so that he won't run away.
EFCC, DSS, Customs, Police, Immigration, Army, Navy, Air Force, others, over to you.
