Some roles will always lead to such. It is clear to me. Therefore, when recruited, know the end of the matter. Check what happened to predecessors.”
Mr Rafiu Sanni @rofasanten wrote: “It is the compendium of evidence that he took to the panel to prove his innocence. Whatever you may accuse Magu of, it is not corruption or self-enrichment.”
Ola maboreje @Olamaboreje1 wrote: “Are we not in trouble with Corruption fight in Nigeria? Is corruption fighting back? Who are the Powerful behind his remover? Is Magu corrupt too? Nuhu Ribadu and Farida Waziri was alleged but later removed; now Magu.Are we ready to fight the monster called Corruption? I Doubt!!!”

Isuph JT@IsuphJt wrote: “Several folks hold that opinion. It’s a temporary setback if Magu ends his tenure under a dark cloud of controversy. I acknowledge what he’s done to give Efcc a bite. EFCC institutional integrity must be preserved from the challenges of its Head.”
Demola Aliyu Adeniran @Demurleigh wrote: “I agree. However, it is men like J. Edgar Hoover, Nuhu Ribadu and Ibrahim Magu who gives organisations like FBI and EFCC their personalities. They mostly become burden to the institution over time.”
