Magu Was Just By DSS, Not Arrested- EFCC Spokesman

The spokesman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Tony Amokeodo has denied the purported arrest of Ibrahim Magu, the acting Chairman of the commission by the department of state security services, saying that Magu was only invited.

Magu’s alleged arrest comes a few days after Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation (AGF), accused the anti-graft czar of gross infractions.

The AGF asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sack Magu over some “weighty” allegations, including the diversion of recovered loot.

In addition to allegedly re-looting the recovered loot, Malami accused the acting EFCC chairman of insubordination and misconduct.
