The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has dismissed an audio clip of its Chairman, Ibrahim Magu saying nothing will happen if former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose dies in its custody.

The former governor has been in custody of the anti-graft agency since he turned himself in on Tuesday.

In a post on its Twitter page, the EFCC urged members of the public to disregard the audio, describing it as false.

The post reads: “#Alert The EFCC alerts the public of an audio recording currently circulating in the social media in which Acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, purportedly made comments to effect that nothing will happen peradventure Ayo Fayose, ex-Ekiti governor dies in custody.

“Interestingly, the audio tape did not disclose the place where the conversation occurred and the person that Magu was supposedly talking to.

“Members of the public are advised to disregard this disingenuous creation an handiwork of mischief makers intent on distracting the EFCC from the serious work of wrapping up the investigation into the corruption allegations against Fayose.

The audio recording is fake as the comments did not emanate from the Chairman of the EFCC.

“Purveyors of this fake news especially a former spokesperson of a leading political party are warned to desist,” tweeted EFCC.
