Magu Bares His Fangs, Questions Impartiality Of Investigative Panel
Suspended EFCC boss Ibrahim Magu, has accused the presidential panel probing the activities of the anti-graft commission under his leadership of being hostile to him anytime he attempts to confront those testifying against him.
He made the accusation against the panel, chaired by Justice Isa Ayo Salami, through one of his lawyers, Tosin Ojaomo. This allegation was contained in a statement entitled ‘10 pertinent questions for Salamiled panel over Magu’, which was made public yesterday.
“Why is the panel hostile to Mr Magu anytime he tries to take up issues with those invited to testify against him?” Ojaomo asked.
“How come that a fact-finding panel over allegations of corruption against Mr Magu has now turned to a platform where certain individuals who have issues against the suspended EFCC boss are being invited to testify against him?
“There is the need to ask this important question: Has any witness testified that he or she gave xyz amount to Mr Magu in order to compromise cases before him?
“Why is it that the Salami led panel is yet
to serve and confront Mr Magu with all the allegations against him ” he further inquired?
The Salami panel is expected to resume its sitting on Tuesday, 4 August. It had adjourned on Tuesday for the Eid-el-Kabir festival.
