Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has denied receiving a sum of N4billion from embattled acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, who is said to be on suspension as he faces probe by a presidential panel on sundry allegations bordering on corruption.

The Vice President will of course not be distracted by these obvious campaigns of lies and calumny”.

Akande said the same Jackson Ude had also been circulating a video on YouTube with a female commentator peddling the same lies, adding that the online publications, being criminally defamatory in nature, had been referred to the relevant law enforcement agencies for investigation and necessary action.
