Reading Time: 1 minute

[Abuja]–A member of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Francis Alimekhena (PDP), representing Edo North Senatorial district has lamented that the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, has been terrorizing members of the Senate.

The Senator said this on the floor of the Senate on Tuesday, adding that myriads of accusations of financial scandals against Senators trending in the media are the handiwork of Magu.

“Mr President, distinguished colleagues, Mr Ibrahim Magu has been terrorizing us since we refused him confirmation.”

“He is behind all manner of allegations against us in the media,” Alimekhena posited.

The Senator and other Senate members who contributed to the matter expressed concerns that  having Ibrahim Magu in acting capacity is detrimental to the growth of democratic practices in the country, as they advised that Buhari have him replaced.
