The leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Uchenna Madu, has described release of the acting chairman of Economic Financial Crime Commission(EFCC), Ibrahim Magu as a subtle means of deceiving Nigerians.
In a statement in Owerri, Imo State capital, he said Magu’s release from detention and sacking of some top officials of EFCC as “kangaroo drama of robbing Peter to pay Paul,” saying that soon, Ibrahim Magu would be promoted rather than sacked.
Magu, he alleged, was sustained as EFCC chairman by President Mohammadu Buhari led administration “to do the biddings of the cabals that currently runs the government of Nigeria.”

According to him, the infiltration of the cabals in administration led to the unhealthy relationship between Magu and the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, who he said was also deeply involved in upholding the overall interest of the cabals, wrecking economic and political havoc on the nation.
“It is uncontrolled greed for political and economical power of the Nigeria state that led to the arrest, prosecution and detention of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu using the instruments of EFCC led by Ibrahim Magu because of some politicians have presidential ambition to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.”
He called for re-branding of EFCC to redeem it from the grip of the cabals in the Presidency.
“If not, it will continue in its subtle and hypocritical anti corruption war against the unfavoured politicians mostly the Southern Christians politicians.”
Madu also condemned the statement credited to Chief Artur Eze stating that Ndigbo are not United to clinch political power in Nigeria.
He said: “We need to clarify that Ndigbo are more and aggressively united in pursuing their common interest in every affairs of our lives.
“We have proved to them severally about our onerous unity in Nigeria during the sit at home exercises and massive demonstrations that shoke the foundation of Nigeria.
“Our unity and coordination are being tested on our daily interactions with fellow Igbos in our respective town union affairs. Our political unity was shown to Peter Obi during the last presidential election.
“It is some of our political leaders like Arthur Eze who always set their personal interest above the overall interest of Ndigbo that create an erroneous impressions to Hausa Fulani that Ndigbo are not United.”
