Emmanuel Adigwe

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has called for a full investigation into the sales of properties seized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) under Magu.
He stated this in a statement issued by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, stressing that the the probe must not end in the removal of Magu.
He said: “Nigerians must know the beneficiaries of the seized properties and how they were sold because most of these properties were bought by associates of Magu, including some so-called human rights lawyers.
“These human rights lawyers were his promoters and today, they are the ones defending him because they know that if this investigation goes deeper than just looking for what Magu did wrong so as to remove him from office, their own dirty secrets will be revealed for Nigerians to see.
“This investigation must not end up as their usual paddy-paddy arrangement.
“It should not end up as a tool just to remove Magu because removing him will not be enough, the loots already ‘re-looted’ must be ‘re-recovered’ and those who ‘re-looted’ the loots brought to book.
“Also, those holding money and properties in trust for Magu as well as those who must have helped him to launder money must be revealed.”
