The Travails of Brother Magu by John Olugbemi


Reminds me of The Trials of Brother Jero,
A 1963 satirical play by the Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka. 
But unlike Brother Jero who was a fake prophet,
Brother Magu is a Nigeria police officer
He was the acting chairman of the EFCC for 5 years before his suspension was approved by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Unlike his predecessor, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu,
Brother Magu’s appointment was never confirmed.
He never got along with the 8th Senate,
That which was led by Dr. Bukola Saraki.
The information mismanagement surrounding the Travails of Brother Magu,
Is a clear indication that the hunter has now become the hunted.
Las las,
The bush meat caught up with the hunter.
The allegations against Bro Magu is ‘plentious’.
Today is his 4th day in detention,
Or rather,
Before the Presidential Probe Committee.
Since Magu is an experienced police officer,
I’m sure he’s quite familiar with the drill.
At this point,
The need to defend himself cannot be overemphasized.
Even though members of the Nigeria Bar Association may not like my suggestion,
I strongly believe,
That the only man who can bail Brother Magu out of his present predicament,
Is none other than,
Barr. Lasisi Elenu.
Yes, the one and only, 
Barr. Lasisi Elenu.
With all due respect, my Lord Spiritual and Temporal,
May I?
