Recall that Magu was suspended by President Buhari amid an ongoing probe into activities and infractions in the EFCC.
Speaking in an interview with The Sun, Galadima said the suspension is just propaganda and Magu has been ‘used and dumped’.
“His suspension was long overdue. Magu should have been long suspended from office but why it took Buhari’s administration five years to remove him may be a surprise to many Nigerians, but for me, it is not,” he said.
“Magu remained that long in office because he has been doing the bidding of some powerful elements in Buhari’s administration.
“But obviously he had stepped on some toes, and that’s why they’ve now decided to do away with him.”
He said the ongoing probe is propaganda, alleging that nothing fruitful will come out of it.
“I believe Magu has offended a powerful cabal in Buhari’s administration, and that’s why they decided to remove him,” he said.
“I am not trying to defend Magu, I have never been his admirer but Nigerians should not be deceived that Magu was sacked because of Buhari’s administration’s commitment to the anti-corruption war. Magu is just being made a scapegoat to create the impression that Buhari is fighting corruption.
“Go and mark my words, nothing will come out of Magu’s case. It’s just like they want to entertain us, it is all part of propaganda to create impression that this administration is fighting corruption.”
