ibrahim-maguThe acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has disowned a recorded audio conversation in which his name was dropped as a willing tool to settle political scores in Akwa Ibom State.

The audio, which contained a conversation allegedly featuring two Akwa Ibom politicians – Ibanga Akpabio, deputy PDP Chairman in the state and younger brother of former Governor Godswill Akpabio and a certain Osong, was attached to a report with the caption “EFCC Detains Brother of Former Akwa Ibom State Governor Ibanga Akpabio”, published on Sahara Reporters.

The EFCC in a statement issued by its spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren on Wednesday, urged the general public to disregard the recorded audio conversation, saying it was nothing but plain braggadocio.

“In the said audio recording, a voice purporting to be Akpabio could be heard dropping the names of some security chiefs including the acting Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Magu, and boasting about the supposed EFCC boss’ willingness to help deal with his purported political adversaries in Akwa Ibom state, especially a certain Robinson Uwak”, the statement said.

“The Commission wishes to state that the claims in this tape especially as it affects Mr. Magu are patently false”, it added.

According to the statement, Mr. Magu has never met the younger Akpabio all his life and could not have been party to any violent scheme to settle unknown political scores in Akwa Ibom.

“Indeed, if Magu were Akpabio’s Man-Friday as he would have his ‘friend’ believe, he would not today be a suspect answering to charges of fraud before the Commission”, Mr. Uwujaren stated.
