The presidency has finally spoken out on the detention of the suspended boss of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.

The statement was made by Mr Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President. He said that the presidential panel investigating Magu might have detained him to ensure relevant documents were not tampered with.

Mr Magu’s lawyer, Mr. Tosin Ojaomo, had saudt that if the panel does not find Mr. Magu guilty, he should be reinstated by President Muhammadu Buhari as the EFCC chairman.

Femi Adesina said that he is not a lawyer to determine if the panel was accurate in detaining Magu for 10 days. He however said that the panel may have done that to ensure that relevant documents needed in connection with the investigations were not tampered with.

According to him, the panel had sat for weeks to determine the matter before he was invited for investigation.

He said, "it is against this backdrop that President Muhammadu Buhari gave the panel the mandate to invite Mr. Magu to answer to the allegations against him.”
