Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has asked the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to probe the owner of a website that accused him of corruption.
Osinbajo says the allegation is ‘injuriously false in every respect’. PointBlank News, run by Jackson Ude, a former aide of former President Goodluck Jonathan , alleged in a recent article that the VP received the sum of N4 billion from embattled acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.
The N4 billion was allegedly given to Osinbajo by Magu who the online platform alleged could not account for the sum of N37 billion. Osinbajo’s spokesperson, Laolu Akande , in a statement on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 dismissed the allegations as ‘false and baseless’.
