“The internal cult is the darkish and immoral component of the organization engaged in persecution, blackmail, frame-ups and cruelty. The cult has been the wheel in the back of the ordeal of their suspended Boss. Until they are rooted out of the corporation too."

In a petition written by an Johnmary Jideobi; an Abuja-based lawyer, Magu and the boyz were accused of unlawful freezing of accounts of an organization named Damjay Integrated Services Limited in Access Bank.

As gathered by PRNigeria, the petition dated July 28, 2020 was obtained in the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) on July 29, 2020.

Jideobi affirmed that the subsequent refusal of the financial institution to unfreeze the account, Magu and EFCC were brought before a ruling High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
