JUST IN: Magu Has Not Been Suspended – Magu’s Lawyer Claims As He Files For Bail
July. 09, 2020
Mr. Tosin Ojaoma, a lawyer to the embattled former Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has said that his client has not been suspended as widely reported.
Recalls that Magu was arrested Monday afternoon by security operatives from EFCC head office and hauled to the Presidential Villa to face an interagency panel investigating him over allegations of corruption and misconduct.
Magu has since remained in police custody as the panel continues to question him over the allegations.
Speaking on the development, Ojaomo told journalists on Wednesday that his client has not been suspended.
His words: “The truth will soon be out. I was there today (Wednesday) but I couldn’t see him. They said I should come early in the morning so I will be there to apply for his bail.
“The news that someone has been appointed to replace him or that he is under suspension is not true. There is no letter of suspension. You will be shocked how this will end.”
He disclosed that he will be filing for a bail application for his client on Thursday, adding that he was yet to see “any court order permitting his detention for more than 48hours.
