The suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has appeared before the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
A source told TheCable that the suspended EFCC chairman was at CCB office in Abuja last Thursday.
The source said Magu could not be attended to as the CCB was having CCB was having its annual lecture with its theme “fighting corruption for socio-economic development”.
Consequently, Magu was said to have returned to the CCB on Friday, December 4 “where he was questioned for hours.”
The CCB had invited the embattled Ibrahim Magu for questioning for failing to properly declare his assets.
The invitation handed to Magu by the CCB was contained in a letter dated November 2, 2020, with reference number CCB/HQ/II&M/007/2093.
Magu was expected to appear before the anti-corruption agency on November 17, 2020.
The document said the suspended EFCC Chairman was asked to come along with acknowledgement copies of all asset declaration forms since joining the public service as well as his payslips and land documents.
In the letter, the embattled Magu was addressed as ‘former chairman’ of the EFCC even though he had not yet been officially sacked.
But Magu refused to appear before the CCB, explaining to the bureau that he is unable to access his office for the requested documents.
He also wrote a letter to the Chairman of the defunct Presidential panel, Justice Ayo Salami, who investigated him, and informed him of his CCB probe and his inability to access the documents.
