MAGU: Court order on Diezani is ‘Mission Impossible’

The Acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has confirmed that Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State and some other Nigerians are currently under investigation.

“Of course, we are doing a couple of checks and investigations here and there. We are investigating almost everybody,” the Magu added.

According to Magu, Okorocha is one of many people being investigated but he said the anti-graft agency has to get to a certain level before it can disclose any further information about an ongoing investigation.

The development comes after Okorocha recently raised the alarm that he was under the spotlight of the EFCC, saying he is the most investigated governor in the country.
