If we recall that sometime last week, an article which was written by Mr. Ude who alleged that the embattled former EFCC Boss, Magu had given the Vice President 4 billion naria to help him in his case.
After the aide to the vice president refuted the claims, the Vice President through his lawyers asked the IG of police investigate the journalist and his platform.
According to Sahara reporters on Twitter, after the investigation was carried out it was discovered that Mr. Ude was indeed a ghost writer who was identified as president Buhari’s spokesman Garba Shehu.

Reacting to the news, Garba Shehu took to his Twitter page to refute the allegations leveled against him.
He tweeted that;
To @SaharaReporters: I don’t write stories for the News Agency of Nigeria. NAN did not at anytime write any such rubbish against the respected Vice President. It was Jackson Ude, who the VP reported to the police who published the false allegation. https://t.co/nkMsRw0Ij8
