The Economic and Financial Crime Commission of Nigeria (EFCC) has just issued a public statement, following the circulating audio tape stating “Nothing Will Happen If Fayose dies in custody.”
It has been 24 hours since the ex-governor of Ekiti state was reported to be in the custody of the EFCC.
However, there is a circulating media tape on all social media platforms, alleged to have contained the voicing of the EFCC Boss Ibrahim Magu, reportedly to have been in a conversation where he stated that “Nothing will happen, if Fayose dies in custody.”
The EFCC through it’s official Twitter handle, @EFCCNigeria has come out to debunk the statement, claiming it’s a forgery and the handiwork of mischief as the acting EFCC Boss Magu never never altered those words.
The EFCC, however, has appealed to the general public to disregard the informations as contained in the tape, currently in circulation, as it is envisaged to tarnish the image and repute of the commission.
