The Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has petitioned the Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, over allegations connecting him to funds allegedly stolen by anti-corruption chief, Ibrahim Magu.

A part of the report on PointBlank News platform claimed that Magu claimed that he released a N4 billion to the VP based on directives the same day the president left the country for the United Kingdom on medical treatment.

In an earlier statement, Laolu Akande, Mr Osinbajo’s spokesperson, described the claims as “false and baseless fabrications.”

Prof. Osinbajo said the report was untrue and defamatory in a letter to the IGP through his lawyers, Taiwo Osipitan. He also copied the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, in the letter.

Meanwhile, Jackson Ude has responded to the lawsuit threat claiming, “If Osinbajo wants to go to court, he needs to resign first and sue me.”
