UPDATE: WE HAVE NO HAND IN REPORTED ARREST OF THE EFCC BOSS, SAYS DSS

The Department of State Services (DSS) has said that it did not arrest Mr Ibrahim Magu, the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

This denial was contained in a statement issued on Monday, July 06, 2020, by the DSS’ Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya. The the statement followed earlier reports that the acting chairman of the anti-graft agency had been arrested by DSS officials in Abuja, Nigeria.

According to Mr Afunanya, the DSS has been inundated with inquiries over the reported arrest of Mr. Magu. He said the DSS had no connection with any such incident.

On his part, Mr. Magu’s S.A. on Media, Tony Amokeodo, told Channels Television that his boss was not arrested but only invited to answer questions regarding some allegations against the agency. Mr. Amokeodo explained that Magu was invited to appear before a Federal Government Panel set up to investigate the allegations of corruption leveled against him. He said the Panel was sitting at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
