Former Chairman, Ibrahim Magu has broken silence, declaring that he was a victim of corruption .
Magu made the assertion on Sunday in Abuja at an award ceremony organised in his honour by Northern Female Students Association.
“I am a victim of corruption fighting back; but I am happy that recent events are revealing the truth to Nigerians,’’ Magu said in recollection of the events that led to his exit from the EFCC.
Magu who was represented by his son, Mr Mohammad-Saeed Ibrahim-Magu thanked the association for conferring on him the award of “Achiever per Excellence’’ and said that he was happy to receive the award.
Ms Aisha Nasir, spokesperson of the association, which comprises female students of universities in the northern parts of Nigeria, explained that Magu was unanimously chosen for the award for his dedication to national service.
“The anti-corruption fight in Nigeria is a binding moral duty that requires seeing beyond political affiliations or preferences.
“Love him or hate him, Ibrahim Magu took the anti-corruption fight to uncharted levels where many people thought could never be attained.
“Magu attracted continental and global commendations for tackling what had been described as the leading factor hindering growth and development of African nations and economies,’’ Nasir said in hailing the fight against corruption by Magu while in the EFCC.
The News Agency of Nigeria, (NAN) reports that the award came on the heels of the Oct. 4 judgment of the FCT High Court delivered by Justice Yusuf Halilu.
