Embattled EFCC Acting Chairman Ibrahim Magu is currently detained in Abuja as he is questioned for alleged corruption charges on him.
The ordeal of Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, got worse on Monday evening when he was thrown into a cell at the Force Criminal Investigation Department Headquarters in Area 10, Federal Capital Territory, shortly after he was interrogated by an interagency presidential panel inside Aso Rock Villa.
Magu’s arrest earlier on Monday afternoon caused an online meltdown as many Nigerians weighed in on the matter involving the Anti Corruption Agency chairman.
His arrest occurred when a combined security team stormed the EFCC office at Wuse II in three trucks to arrest and move Magu to the Presidential Villa in the Asokoro area of the Federal Capital Territory to face the panel.
News outlet SaharaReporters gathered that the interagency committee led by a former Court of Appeal judge, Ayo Salami, did not show Magu a copy of the allegations against him even though he requested to see a one.
Panel members, as it was revealed were only read from a dossier in front of them during the grilling session of the embattled Ibrahim Magu.
After the completion of interrogation by the Presidential interagency committee, Salami, who handled the whole process was said to not be satisfied with Magu’s defence, and hence ordered that the Acting EFCC boss be kept in detention until 10:00am this (Tuesday) morning when he’ll be returned to Aso Rock Villa for further interrogation.
These recent developments contradict claims that Magu was not arrested as initially reported by EFCC spokesperson Dele Oyewale.
The DSS in a 2016 report revealed that Magu was living in a N40m mansion.
