The professor of law also denied media report credited to him where he alledgedly said that Magu would not be prosecuted. He however, expressed confidence that the Chairman of the panel, Ayo Salami would not allow injustice to occur in the panel.

He stated, “What I said was that Magu could not be prosecuted before the Salami Report is out and that Malami’s allegations are just what they are, allegations in a petition.

“No one is prosecuted on unverified allegations as the PDP wanted, otherwise it would be a lost cause from the very beginning. In my statement, I made it clear that Malami’s petition was just the beginning of a process that could lead to prosecution if solid evidence is established upon investigation.

“I did not say Magu may not be prosecuted. I am not privy to the politics of the Presidency. That was from the Daily Independent’s unnamed source in the Presidency.
