Former Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose alleged that the ousted acting Chairman of the economic and financial crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, sold the recovered assets to his accomplices.
Fayose, who made the announcement in a tweet on Friday, July 10, called for a full investigation into what happened to the confiscated property under Magu’s leadership.
He said that President panel’s investigation of EFCC activities should not only be aimed at removing Magu from office, adding that the loot allegedly re-looted under Magu’s supervision should be restored.
The former Governor claimed that the property seized by the EFCC was bought by Magu partners, including some so-called human rights lawyers.
He said Nigerians should know the beneficiaries of confiscated property and how they were sold.
Fayose also stated that those who hold money and property in trust to Magu, as well as those who must have helped him launder money, should be disclosed and brought to justice.
Below are tweets of Fayose who presses charges against the magician:
Meanwhile, Wahab Shittu, the lawyer of the suspended EFCC acting Chairman Ibrahim MAGU, on Friday, July 10, asked the presidential Investigative Committee to release his client on bail.
The Globalgistng reports that he said that Magu needed bail because the print and electronic media took undue advantage of his detention to launch a smear campaign against him.
Globalgistng gathered that Shittu made six other demands including making the terms of reference of the committee available to Magu and giving him the opportunity to know the allegations against him.
He said that the Committee called witnesses and questioned them behind magu’s back, and at the same time prohibited him and his lawyer from participating in proceedings involving such witnesses.
Shittu made these demands on Friday, July 10, in a request letter to the group.
