The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission says its acting Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, is only facing an investigative panel and is not being detained by the Department of State Services.
The EFCC said this in a statement by its Spokesman, Dele Oyewale, on Monday.
The statement read in part, “Mr. Ibrahim Magu on Monday, July 6, 2020, honoured an invitation by a Presidential Panel reviewing the activities of the EFCC, at the Banquet Hall wing of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He was served the invitation to the panel while on his way to the Force Headquarters, Abuja for a meeting. The EFCC’s boss was neither arrested nor forced to honour the invitation. A member of a legal team from the EFCC is also with him on the panel.”
Magu, who has been serving in acting capacity for almost five years, was invited after the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), accused him of financial impropriety and corruption.
