Did Nigeria's Anti-Graft Boss Blame Coronavirus on Corruption?

The acting head of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Ibrahim Magu has stunned his audience at a public event, which included President Muhammadu Buhari, when he blamed corruption for the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus. Magu made the remarks while trying to link corruption to the problems Nigeria faces. The anti-corruption body has quickly dismissed media reports on Magu's comments as "false and misleading".
