Update: Magu Being Held by Presidency, Says Nigerian Police, Denies Detaining Him

The Nigeria Police Force has debunked reports of detaining Ibrahim Magu, ousted Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

This was contained in a letter written to Tosin Ojaomo, counsel to Magu, by DCP Idowu Owohunwa, Principal Staff Officer to the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, in reply to Magu’s bail application. The force denied detaining Magu but said he was being ‘held by the Presidency.

The letter partly reads, “The Inspector-General directs that your attention be drawn to the fact that the Nigeria Police Force is not investigating Ibrahim Magu and he is accordingly not being detained by the police but by the Presidential Panel that is investigating the activities of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

“The Inspector-General of Police therefore advises that you consider redirecting your request to the Chairman of the Presidential Panel for appropriate attention.”

 

Magu was picked up last week Monday in Abuja by a combined team of Department of State Services (DSS) and police officers and taken to the Presidential Villa where he has been facing questions from the Ayo Salami panel.

He has been detained since then despite his bail application by his lawyer.
