Magu’s grilling enters day 2 as panel members arrive
The Justice Ayo Salami-led investigative panel on allegations of corruption against the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, continued sitting on Tuesday.
The panel, on Monday, grilled Magu till almost midnight.
He is facing allegations of corruption leveled against him by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
The panel had been sitting for about three weeks but Magu was summoned before it on Monday.
It was also gathered that Monday’s incident, which led to the “arrest” of the commission’s chairman on the street, was warranted by Magu’s reluctance to answer the panel’s several summonses.
Meanwhile, the Justice Ayo Salami-led panel probing allegations against the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, commenced its second day of sitting inside the State House Conference Centre, Abuja, on Tuesday as the panel members arrived the conference centre premises.
Journalists were again denied by security personnel at the State House Conference Centre, where the panel has been sitting.
