Former acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr Ibrahim Magu has revealed that his exit from the anti-corruption agency was an act of corruption fighting back.
Magu made the assertion at an award ceremony organised in his honour by Northern Female Students Association in Abuja on Sunday.
Magu who was represented by his son, Mr Mohammad-Saeed Ibrahim-Magu thanked the association for conferring on him the award of “Achiever per Excellence’’ and said that he was happy to receive the award.
The award came on the heels of the October 4 judgment of the FCT High Court delivered by Justice Yusuf Halilu.
Justice Halilu exonerated Magu of a false claim that Pastor Emmanuel Omale of the Divine Hand of God Prophetic Ministry, and his wife, Deborah laundered N573 million for the former EFCC boss.
It is recalled that Magu was suspended as acting chairman of the EFCC in 2020.
