- The suspended EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu, may be facing another trial soon after his ordeal with the Salami-led panel
- Amid the panel probe, the embattled EFCC chief was summoned by the Code of Conduct Bureau
- Weeks after the summon, Magu has appeared before the bureau and was grilled for a couple of hours
Ibrahim Magu, the suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), honoured the invitation of the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) in Abuja, on Monday, December 7.
ThisDay reports that Magu was, however, not attended to as the CCB was having its annual lecture.
Nonetheless, the newspaper notes that Magu had earlier been at the CCB on Friday, December 4, where he was probed on his assets declaration for some hours.
Legit.ng recalls that the CCB had earlier invited Magu on Tuesday, November 17 and asked him to come along with some relevant documents regarding his assets.
However, the embattled EFCC boss, through his lawyer, replied the CCB that he would not be able to honour the invitation on the grounds of lack of access to the relevant documents which the CCB is demanding from him.
The EFCC chief's lawyer subsequently asked the CCB to extend the invitation pending the return of his documents by the Department of State Security Service (DSS).
Meanwhile, Magu will know his fate when a four-man committee reviews the report of the panel of enquiry into his tenure at the commission.
The four-man committee was set up by President Muhammadu Buhari after the Justice Ayo Salami-led panel concluded its probe into the allegations against the suspended EFCC chairman.
Magu was suspended as the chairman of the commission over alleged abuse of office.
The panel has reportedly recommended his removal as EFCC boss for allegedly mismanaging recovered assets.
