- Ibrahim Magu has been ordered to provide proofs that he has always declared his assets properly
- CCB summoned the suspended EFCC boss to produce documents showing records of his properties and further documents proving he declared them
- Magu is expected to appear before the CCB on Monday, November 17
The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) has summoned former anti-corruption boss, Ibrahim Magu to appear before it.
Channels TV reports that the suspended boss of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was summoned in a letter dated Monday, November 2.
According to the report, Magu is expected to appear before the CCB on Monday, November 17 with documents of all his landed properties.
The letter was signed by CCB's director of monitoring and intelligence unit.
Although the CCB did not accuse the suspended anti-corruption of any wrongdoing, it demanded a list of documents that Magu must provide on November 17.
These include asset declaration documents, payslips and property documents among others.
Legit.ng notes that this is the first time the CCB has been publicly mentioned in the case against Magu since his probe began months ago.
The former anti-corruption boss was suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, July 7, to allow him to face a probe into the allegations of misconduct against him.
Magu has continued to deny any wrongdoing. He claimed that some powerful people in government were working against him because he stepped on their toes while doing his job.
His lawyer, Wahab Shittu, also denied that Magu ever admitted any guilt in the allegations against him.
Shittu alleged misrepresentation of Magu’s closing remarks before the Justice Ayo Salami’s commission of inquiry investigating the accusations against him.
Shittu said Magu did not at any time admit guilt before the probe panel, stressing that he only pleaded for justice and fair-play by the panel members.
