Magu Only Went To Honour Presidential Panel Invitation - EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has dismissed claims that its Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, was arrested by DSS on Monday.

According to EFCC, their boss only went to honour an invitation by a presidential panel.

There were claims that the Department of State Security (DSS) had arrested Mr Magu but a statement by the EFCC Head, Media and Publicity, Dele Oyewale on Monday, said the anti-craft agency’s boss was neither arrested nor forced to honour an invitation.

According to the statement, the EFCC boss only honoured an invitation by a Presidential Panel reviewing the activities of the agency, 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.”
