Laoulu Akande, the Senior Special Assistant to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on media and publicity has reacted to the news being spread on social media claiming that the embattled EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu confessed that he gave N4bn to the Vice President from his alleged loot.
Reacting via Twitter on Wednesday, Akande said Osinbajo never received any such money from Magu.
He described the news making rounds on social media about Osinbajo’s alleged involvement in the fraud and corruption case as nothing but lies.
The Vice President’s spokesperson added that the news is been peddled by those who are out to confuse the public and smear Prof. Osinbajo’s image.
He wrote: “Inundated by wide circulation of Fake News about VP’s purported involvement in some EFCC recovery billions, pls rest assured they’re all LIES: calculated to confuse and concocted to smear Prof. Osinbajo’s image. The VP has’nt & will never be involved in any such shady activities.”
