Magu believes it should even be referred to as corruption-virus because that is what it is.
According to him, he will not be surprised to find out that someone sat in a lab and created coronavirus to deliberately infect and destroy lives, which is a pure corrupt act.
He added anything that is created by a corrupt mind is a product of corruption.
His words, “Somebody actually created corruption-viruses…I mean…coronavirus. Somebody deliberately sat down in the lab and came up with the creation of coronavirus with a view to infect and destroy other people. So what else is more corrupt than that?”
“So, it’s created by a corrupt mind, so I insist that coronavirus is caused by corruption.”

Ibrahim Magu (born 5 May 1962) is a Nigerian police officer who was appointed Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on 9 November 2015 after chairman Ibrahim Lamorde (who has earlier served twice) was sacked by President Muhammadu Buhari. Both Lamorde and Magu served during Nuhu Ribadu’s time at the anti-graft agency and were also credited with part of the success Ribadu recorded in his time.
Magu was born on 5 May 1962 in Maiduguri, Borno State. He attended Maiduguri’s primary school (from 1969 to 1975), Waka Biu’s Secondary School from 1975 to 1980 and Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria from 1982 to 1986 where he graduated with a B.Sc Accounting.
