Keep Magu in detention for 28 days – Fayose tells Panel, gives reasons


Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has called on the Federal Government to detain embattled former acting chairman of the Economic and Financial crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, for 28 days.

Fayose, made the appeal on Saturday evening, via Twitter adding that it was necessary to remand Magu for that duration pending the completion of investigations by the Presidential Panel.

It will be recalled that Magu has been in detention since last week Monday when he was arrested by Security Operatives and whisked away to the Presidential Villa to face an Inter-agency Panel. The panel is investigating the Borno-born anti-graft chief over allegations of Fraud and Misconduct. Fayose stated;

“The Panel should formalize Magu’s detention by obtaining 28-days Remand Order from court to enable completion of investigations. The panel must equally get Temporary & Permanent Forfeiture of loots linked to him. That’s Magu’s style & procedure while in office.”

“He can’t complain now Wahab Shittu, EFCC lawyer turned Magu’s defender understands their style, so why is he complaining? Or didn’t he work with Magu to secure court orders to detain people indefinitely and forfeit properties linked to people being investigated?”
