The Reporter, Jackson Ude, who accused the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, of collecting N4 billion of recovered loot from Ibrahim Magu, the suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has stood his ground on the allegations,
Vice President Osinbajo had on Thursday, asked the Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu, to investigate the allegations that he had received the said sum from Magu, illegally.
This was contained in a petition addressed to the IGP, through his (Osinbajo) Lawyer, Taiwo Osipitan, and dated July 8, 2020.
The Vice President asked the IGP to initiate criminal proceedings against Jackson Ude, if the allegations are proven to be untrue, after investigations.
Reacting to this however, Ude stated that the Nigeria Police Force cannot arrest him, and insisted that Osinbajo must first resign as Vice President, before dragging him to court.
He disclosed that since the Vice President is denying the allegation, the Presidential Panel investigating Magu and the Police, should be compelled to release the verbatim transcripts of Magu’s confessions.
Ude, a former Director of Strategy and Communications under the President Goodluck Jonathan administration, tweeted: “Since Osinbajo, the Star Boy, is denying, let his Lawyers compel the Presidential Panel investigating Magu and the Police, to release the verbatim transcripts of Magu’s confessions. This is not about waving immunity.
“I am not afraid of Osinbajo and his minions. If he indeed wants to go to court, he needs to resign first, and sue me. He cannot be VP and be using State resources to intimidate the Judiciary. He cannot wave an immunity that he did not place. Osinbajo should resign first!
“Osinbajo should have used the US Police, FBI, or even the CIA, to charge me for criminal defamation. Using the Nigerian Police is a waste of poor Nigerian taxpayers money. Except his aim is to arrest me in Nigeria, lock me up forever. Anyway, perhaps Na my ghost dem go arrest.”
