Amid the ongoing travails of the boss Magu, reports emerged on social media that Magu disclosed that he gave Osinbajo N4 billion.

The report which was first published by a blog, PointBlank News, run by Jackson Ude, a former director of strategy and communications under President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration claimed that unnamed sources within the panel investigating the suspended boss “exposed the vice president’s involvement in the scandal.”

The Vice President in a letter to the IGP through his lawyers, Taiwo Osipitan, on Wednesday said the report was untrue and defamatory.

He also copied the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, in the letter.

“On the 8th of July 2020, Mr Ude wrote and published on his website materials/stories which are criminally defamatory of our client. We have the instructions of our client that the said publications are injuriously false in every respect,” the lawyer partly said.

Mr Osinbajo also frowned at Mr Ude’s Twitter publication where he again accused the vice president of corruption.

“HushBajo. N4billion. The investment. Okechukwu Enelamah the erand boy. The secretly recorded night vigil prayers at the Villa Chapel. The letter of resignation written for Buhari in Tunis by Tinubu/Osinabjo while Ba was sick. The scheming to take over. Etc. This na pay back,” the tweet reads.

The tweet was said to have been shared on several social media platforms to make the vice president appear like a “dishonest and disloyal public officer and consequently unfit for the position of the vice president of the Federal Republic of which he is occupying,” the official said.

The lawyer asked the IGP to investigate the allegations and if the purveyor was found guilty, the police should initiate criminal proceedings against Mr Ude and his platform to restrain them from future ‘false publications’.
