EFCC: Magu To Spend Another Night In Detention



The embattled acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu is set to spend the second night in detention.

This is as Naija News gathered he was on Tuesday, moved back to the custody of the Force Criminal Investigation Bureau (FCID).

It will be recalled Magu is appearing before a presidential investigative panel headed by Justice Ayo Salami over allegations of fraud levveled against him.

He first appeared before the panel on Monday and was kept in detention thereafter. It was from detention that he appeared before the panel again on Tuesday when it reconvened.

After Tuesday’s session which ended around 8.30pm, this online medium understands Magu was again moved back to the Force Criminal Investigation Bureau (FCID).

Meanwhile, sources have disclosed that the President, Muhammadu Buhari has approved the suspension of Magu as the EFCC boss.

According to the source, “It is commonsensical that when an investigation of this nature is ongoing, you don’t allow the person being investigated to keep the keys of the office for which he is being investigated.

“This is because if he keeps the keys, there can be a kind of tampering with documents or evidence.

“It is not logical and it is even undemocratic to allow such to happen.”
