Abraham Magu Finally Released From detention

The embattled suspended EFCC acting chairman Abraham Magu has finally been released from detention. This happened on Wednesday evening after the police had earlier in the day denied that they were not the one detaining Magu, that the presidential panel investigating him, was responsible for his detention, in a response to the bail application by Magu's lawyer.

The release of Magu signals some fairness in the presidential panel investigation process. Magu is currently being investigated in response to the allegation of corruption against him by the Attorney-General of the federal Malami. Magu who was initially picked to answer questions before the panel was afterwards datained. Also, the attempt by his lawyer Mr. Tosin Ojaomo to secure his release from police detention, met with a brick war when the police in a reply to the bail application, denied being responsible for Magu's detention, and naming the presidential panel as responsible.

Hopefully, the police response may have compelled the presidential panel to order the release of Magu, as the panel has no law backing it to have detained Magu. However, the saga between Magu and Malami will get interesting in the next few days, as Magu would now have the chance to release all he knows about Malami in the alleged corruption. Therefore we are about to see a door of huge corruption opened to the knowledge of Nigerians as never before.
