The Code of Conduct Bureau has opened a new vista in the investigation of Ibrahim Magu, suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, asking him to submit details of his assets..
Magu has been facing a Judicial Commission of Inquiry headed by Justice Ayo Salami, following an indictment by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami SAN.
The panel and Magu’s lawyer, Mr. Wahab Shittu, have been brick-batting over the panel’s modus operandi as it remains unclear if it has submitted its report; or whether the new onslaught from the CCB is an extension of the Salami panel’s work.
The CCB has asked Magu to come to its office next Tuesday with documents of his assets and copies of his assets declaration forms while in service.
In a letter dated November 2, 2020 by its Director of Intelligence, Investigation, and Monitoring, Superintendent of Police Gwimi, the CCB wrote: “The Bureau is investigating a case of alleged breach of Code of Conduct for Public Officers against Mr. Ibrahim Mustapha Magu, the former Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
