Dino Melaye mocks suspended EFCC boss, Magu

Senator Dino Melaye.

Dino Melaye, who represented Kogi West Senatorial District in the 8th assembly, on Wednesday, mocked Ibrahim Magu over his suspension by President Muhammadu Buhari as the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC).

Melaye made the mockery in a video he captioned “Karma na shege…..” via his Twitter handle @dino_melaye.

“I talk am, I talk am, me I talk about Magu. Buhari no gree listen, now Buhari don see for himself ooo. Say many Magu Dem plenty for im government, M.A.G.U, Magu!!!”

The former lawmaker, in a dramatic way, said he once told President Muhammadu Buhari that there were lots of “Magus” in his government but Buhari failed to listen to him.

In the early hours of Monday, Magu was arrested by men of the  Department of State Services, (DSS).

The EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dele Oyewale, however, claimed Magu was only invited for questioning and not arrested

Magu has been in detention since Monday.

Journalists were barred from a sitting of a panel set up to probe the alleged violations by the former EFCC boss who was suspended  by President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday.

Mr Mohammed Umar, the Director of Operations, EFCC, has since taken charge of the anti-graft agency in the interim.
