Reps Committee Issue Warrant Of Arrest On Magu Over Patience Jonathan’s Account

The house of representatives committee on public petitions has issued an arrest warrant on Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).




The lawmakers took this action after Magu failed to appear before them on different occasions.

The committee is hearing a petition filed by Patience Jonathan, former first lady.

In the petition, she accused the EFCC, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), and other security agencies of harassing her.

At a resumed hearing on Wednesday, Uzoma Nkem-Abonta, chairman of the committee, said Magu was nonchalant about the issue.

Nkem-Abonta said the acting EFCC chairman failed to appear before the committee after several letters was sent to him.

“There is a need to say that people should work within the confines of the law because nobody is above the law,” he said.

“EFCC has consistently absented itself from this hearing. If it were here, perhaps we would have dispensed with this investigation.What the EFCC is doing is not only unfair but disrespectful to the parliament.”

Kingsley Chinda, a lawmaker from Rivers and member of the committee, moved the motion for an arrest warrant to be issued for Magu.

“It’s not only for the workings of this committee but for any other institutional body,” Chinda said.

“So, I move that the EFCC chairman be issued a bench warrant to appear before this committee to explain his role so that we can conclude this investigation.”

All the members of the committee present supported the motion and Nkem-Abonta ruled that a bench warrant be issued for Magu.

Oh Lord.....I pray this day before the many blog readers and blog owner;
May these supposed law makers who do contrary to their duties die a fools death. May they know no peace as they destroy the entity of a nation on a fragile ground. As they delude the masses of better life,may their lives be cut short and their offspring be vagabonds on the Earth. This I pray to God the Father.......through Jesus Christ my Lord.

Very stupid prayer. The law is the law and even though the house of Rep members are corrupt, magu deserves what he's getting. You are accusing someone of a crime yet u can't come and defend ur accusation. That alone reeks of guilt

Tankio, beta pikin. What happened to vigorously pursuing the Abachas, Obasanjos, Alhajis, Gusaus, Babangidas and the former seamstress, now the richest woman in Africa for same corruption? How about that? Mehn, this blatant injustice is like smoke in the eyes. QED@atm: AllTribesMatter, that's what my ATM denotes for all the monitoring spirits out there.
