EFCC: Why Magu Won’t Appear Before CCB

Ibrahim Magu, suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), will not appear before the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) on Tuesday.

It was gathered that Ibrahim Magu will write to the CCB to seek an extension, explaining to the bureau that he is unable to access his office for the requested documents.

A source said: “He is writing CCB to give him more time to enable him access requested documents in his office.”

Naija News reports that the CCB had invited the embattled Ibrahim Magu for questioning for failing to properly declare his assets.

The invitation handed to Magu by the CCB was contained in a letter dated November 2, 2020, with reference number CCB/HQ/II&M/007/2093.

Magu was expected to appear before the anti-corruption agency on November 17, 2020.

The document said the suspended EFCC Chairman was asked to come along with acknowledgment copies of all asset declaration forms since joining the public service as well as his payslips and land documents.

In the letter, the embattled Magu was addressed as ‘former chairman’ of the EFCC even though he had not yet been officially sacked.

The letter read in part, “The bureau is investigating a case of alleged breach of Code of Conduct for Public Officers against Mr. Ibrahim Mustapha Magu, the former acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

“You are expected to come along with certified true copies of the following documents: Acknowledgment slips of all your asset declarations to Code of Conduct Bureau since you joined the public service.

“Copies of your appointment letter, acceptance, records of service, and payslips from January to May 2020. All documents of your landed properties both developed and undeveloped.”
