Nigeria’s Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN) has blamed the ongoing investigation of suspended EFCC Chairman Ibrahim Magu for the recent wave of media attacks against him.
Abubakar Malami made this claim against Ibrahim Magu in a statement released by his spokesperson Umar Gwandu on Sunday. In his statement, he also stated his resolution to not relent in the fight against impunity by public officeholders.
The statement read in part “I think that is the burden of leadership. Whoever is appointed as a leader, it is only natural that in one way or the other one must be attacked. The good one has been doing can hardly be seen when one remains in office.”
“It is a common tradition for people to attack the President, Governors and those in the helm of affairs or in leadership position. I cannot, certainly, be an exception.”

“The bottom line is whether in the fight against impunity we are working in line and in tune with the law,”
