Magu was accused of corrupt practices and abuse of office by the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) and minister of justice, Abubakar Malami.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Magu's lawyer, Wahab Shittu, alleged misrepresentation of his client’s closing remarks before the Justice Ayo Salami’s commission of inquiry.

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.

He said:

“At no time did Magu admit to guilt to the allegations – the subject matter of the inquiry. Indeed, the only thing going for Magu is his conviction of his innocence.”
