The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has said that its acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, was not arrested by operatives of the Department of State Services on Monday.

The EFCC said this in a statement by its Spokesman, Dele Oyewale, on Monday, saying Magu is only facing an investigative panel and is not being detained by the DSS.

The statement read partly, “Mr. Ibrahim Magu on Monday, July 6, 2020, honoured an invitation by a Presidential Panel reviewing the activities of the EFCC, at the Banquet Hall wing of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“He was served the invitation to the panel while on his way to the Force Headquarters, Abuja for a meeting. The EFCC’s boss was neither arrested nor forced to honour the invitation. A member of a legal team from the EFCC is also with him on the panel.”
