Magu Saw Himself As The Law – Ex DSS Director

Published

on

EFCC

A former Assistant Director with the Department of State Services, Dennis Amachree, has reacted to the arrest of acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu.

Amachree who appeared on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme this morning, said Magu started to see himself above the law.

He noted that Magu became a law unto himself and refused to submit to constituted authority, which was the height of insubordination.

According to Amachree, in the order of things, just as the Department of Justice oversees the activities of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the United States, the Attorney-General of the Federation is the supervising authority over the EFCC.

He further noted that trouble started for Magu when he started to engaged in a battle with the AGF, Abubakar Malami (SAN).

He added that the DSS did not arrest Magu, saying that a group of policemen working with the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, effected his arrest.

Amachree said, “I think Magu has some blame on his side. Apparently, he was operating as a law unto himself. He must be reporting to somebody. Even in the US, the FBI reports to the Department of Justice. In Nigeria, EFCC ought to report to the AGF who is now the originator of the allegations.

“When this thing came up, they knew he may not want to come, I don’t know, but he was stopped on the way to another meeting but they said he must go before the panel. He was accosted by policemen from the FCID.

“However, because they were policemen in plain clothes, many people thought it was the DSS.”

Recall that Naija News yesterday brought you news about Magu, following his alleged arrests by officials of the Department of State Services (DSS). over allegations that he owns four properties and that he was allegedly transferring funds abroad through a third party.
