…Ude dares Osinbajo, asks VP to resign before dragging him to court
Jackson Ude, the blogger who indicted the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo of collecting N4 billion from the suspended boss of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has stated that he was not afraid of the Vice President.
Osinbajo had on Thursday asked the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, to probe claims that Magu gave him N4 billion from Magu from the recovered funds, as contained in a petition addressed to the IGP through Osinbajo’s lawyer, Taiwo Osipitan and dated July 8, 2020.
The Vice President asked IGP Adamu to initiate criminal proceedings against Jackson Ude if the allegations are upheld to be untrue after investigation.
He also obliged the Presidential Panel probing Magu and the police to publish the verbatim transcripts of Magu’s confessions if the vice president is refuting the claims
Ude, a former Director of Strategy and Communications during President Goodluck Jonathan administration, tweeted, “Since Osinbajo, the Star Boy, is denying, let’s have lawyers compel the Presidential Panel investigating Magu and the Police, to release the verbatim transcripts of Magu’s confessions. This is not about waving immunity.
“I am not afraid of Osinbajo and his minions. If he indeed wants to go to court, he needs to resign first, and sue me. He cannot be VP and be using state resources to intimidate the Judiciary. He cannot wave an immunity that he didn’t place. Osinabjo should resign first!

“Osinbajo should have used the U.S Police, FBI or even the CIA to charge me for criminal defamation. Using the Nigerian Police is a waste of poor Nigerian taxpayers money. Except his aim is to arrest me in Nigeria, lock me up forever. Anyway, perhaps Na my ghost dem go arrest.”
