Patience Jonathan Not Only One Being Investigated – EFCC Source
Patience Jonathan had earlier accused Ibrahim Magu of bias and intimidation, saying that he is spreading falsehood against her in the name of investigation.
But a source at the EFCC has dismissed the claim.
Ibrahim Magu is the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) which has been investigating the allegations of corruption against the former First Lady.
A statement issued by her media aide, Mr Belema Meshack-Hart, on Monday in Abuja, quoted Mrs. Jonathan as saying that the EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu, is “prosecuting a plot to destroy my family”.
“Magu’s vindictive disposition towards my family is portraying the organisation as an agency for revenge,” it said.
Efforts to speak with EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, were not successful, but a senior official of the commission, rejected suggestions that the outfit was out on a witch hunt.
“We are not out on a witch hunt; we are not targeting anyone or family for a witch hunt; it is not only Mrs. Jonathan that is being investigated. Many people are answering questions in various places.
“Those found guilty will be charged before a competent court of law; those who have nothing to hide should have no fear because we shall not victimise anyone that is innocent,” the source told NAN, craving anonymity.
Nevertheless, Patience Jonathan has urged Buhari to intervene and ensure justice is served.
She also warned that the EFCC’s actions could be interpreted as part of a larger plot to disgrace his (Buhari)’s predecessor.
