Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has reacted to allegation of receiving N4bn from Ibrahim Magu, the embattled acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The Special Assistant to Osinbajo on media, Laolu Akande, described the allegation as lies “calculated to confuse and concocted to smear Prof. Osinbajo’s image.”

He added that Osinbajo hasn’t and will never be involved in any shady activity. The tweet read;

“Inundated by wider circulation of Fake News about VP’s purported involvement in some EFCC recovery billions, please rest assured they’re all LIES: calculated to confuse and concocted to smear Prof. Osinbajo’s image.
