Malami Denies Conspiracy In ‘Witch-Hunt Of Magu’

ABUJA - Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Justice Minister Abubakar Malami has denied reports that he allegedly conspired with a lawyer to testify against suspended Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.

Magu is being investigated by a presidential panel head by a retired President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami, following a petition Malami sent to President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a statement on Monday in Abuja, Malami’s spokesman Umar Gwnadu said the report about the AGF’s involvement with Donald Wokoma was false.

The statement reads: “The attention of the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice has been drawn to a flimsy allegation made by Victor Giwa, accusing …Malami of conniving with Donald Wokoma to witch-hunt him over what he called ‘his refusal to testify against Magu’ in the ongoing retired Justice Ayo Salami-led Presidential Panel probing Magu.

“The Attorney General never met Giwa and has never discussed any issue with the so-called Donald Wokoma, nor asked anybody, personally or by proxy, to engage the so-called Victor to testify against Magu.”
