EFCC: Magu honoured panel’s invitation, not arrested

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied reports that its acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, has been arrested.

The media was, on Monday, awash with reports that Magu was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS).

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.”

“The EFCC boss was neither arrested nor forced to honour the invitation. A member of a legal team from the EFCC is also with him on the Panel,” the statement added.
