Magu released from detention


The suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has been released from detention.

Magu was arrested on July 6, 2020 amid allegations of corruption and brought before the Justice Ayo Salami-led Presidential panel.

He spent 10 days in detention.

The details of his bail are still sketchy, but Magu has returned to his Abuja residence.

Magu was interrogated over allegations of corruption and brought before the Justice Ayo Salami-led Presidential panel.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Nigeria Police Force denied they are detaining him.

In a letter signed by DCP Idowu Owohunwa, Principal Staff Officer to the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu and addressed to Magu’s counsel, Tosin Ojaomo, the police made it clear that the suspended EFCC boss was being “held” by the Presidency.

The suspended EFCC boss was accused of being unable to account for the interest accrued to recovered funds of about N550bn.
