Shehu Sani, a member of the eighth National Assembly, once again ridiculed the ousted acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim magu.
It was reported that the former Senator, in a tweet on Friday, July 10, said that the embattled EFCC boss was intoxicated with power and that he was later consumed with power.
Magu, who faces trial on corruption charges brought against him, has been in custody since Monday, July 6.
Sani said that most people in the corridor of power usually don’t understand that power is transient and has consequences.
He tweeted: “every time you remind people intoxicated with power that power is transient and comes with consequences, they think it will never happen to them.”
The former lawmaker wondered why Magu, who in many cases did not give bail on Friday, was now begging the presidential Commission probing him to grant him bail on Friday.
“A person who doesn’t give bail on Friday now wants bail on Friday; he wants to take what he can’t give,” he said.
In a veiled reference to the anti-corruption king, Sani said that the prisoners of the cell do not respect any big people.
“The first thing the prisoners tell you when you don’t go into the cell on ” Hey, Mister this cell on,we get our own gofment here, make you not come here, big man here, If you don’t want us to bite you, make you be peaceful and obey here, do you hear? he wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile, it was reported that Wahab Shittu, lawyer of Ibrahim MAGU, on Friday, July 10, asked the presidential Investigative Committee to release his client on bail.
It was reported that he said that the magician needed bail because the print and electronic media took undue advantage of his detention to launch a smear campaign against him.
Shittu made six other demands, including making Magu aware of the Committee’s terms of reference and allowing him to read the charges against him.
He said that the Committee called witnesses and questioned them behind Magu’s back, and at the same time prohibited him and his lawyer from participating in proceedings involving such witnesses.
