Ibrahim Magu the EFCC boss dodges question regarding Tinubu(Jagaban) bullion Van

Ibrahim Magu, the current Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), sidestepped questions about a bullion van that breezed into one of APC's national leader Bola Ahmed Tinubu's houses around the time of the February 2019 general election in Nigeria.

Images of the bullion van strolling into the property as a crowd thronged the place in typical fashion, went viral at the time; in the midst of insinuations that the incident was yet another evidence of the governing APC's plans to rig and buy the vote.

TINUBU'S RESPONSE After being questioned about the van(s), Tinubu said as a private citizen that nobody should question him about a cash van driving into his compound because what he wants to do with his money is not really the business of anybody.

"Excuse me, is it my money or government money? So even if I have money to spend in my premises, what is your headache?" Jagaban questioned the press. "Excuse me, if I don't represent any agency of government and I have my money to spend,if I have money, and if I like I give it to the people(citizens) free of charge as long it is not to buy votes.

Ibrahim Magu has no time for Tinubu(jagaban) questions. The Activists have been walking the EFCC for months to investigate the bullion van case, pointing out that the arrival of a cash van at the home of a powerful political party leader was yet another evidence of corruption within Nigeria's patronage network and governing party.

Magu completely avoided questions on the bullion van during an open session with journalists on Friday, November 1, 2019. You want me to talk about a petition here? Next question please. Magu requested. Reports Claims petitions are left unnoticed in the EFCC office surrounding the cash van and Tinubu's alleged corruption.
