The EFCC Acting Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, says he is still in shock over the news of the passing of the Chairman of The Punch Newspapers group, Mr. Gbadebowale Aboderin.

Recalling that the late Aboderin had set the tone of The PUNCH group’s critical, supportive relationship with the work of the Commission, Magu, lamented that he feels a personal sense of loss as death had snatched from him and the EFCC, a true anti-corruption fighter.

Magu recalled that media owners and practitioners have been the bastion of the war against corruption and the late Aboderin not only stood out in the group but also ensured that everyone in The Punch management and staff upheld the values of professional integrity and actively supported the anti-corruption war.

“He was our partner as a person and through The PUNCH medium. His death at this time is a rude blow not just to his immediate family and professional group, but also to Nigeria, because we are going to miss the invaluable contributions and encouragement of an influential commander of a critical sector of the Nigerian anti-corruption war,” Magu said.

The EFCC Acting chairman further stated that the best way to remember the late Aboderin is to firmly entrench in Nigerians’ private and public lives, the values of unyielding patriotism and professional integrity, which he espoused.

He prayed Almighty God to receive the soul of the late media mogul and grant him everlasting repose in His bosom and to the family and associates he left behind, the strength to bear the irreparable loss.
