Ibrahim Magu, the suspended Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), who has been in detention since he was arrested and hauled before a presidential panel probing his stewardship at the anti-graft agency, has regained his freedom.
Magu was detained in a police facility in Abuja from where he was taken before the panel investigating his activities every morning to answer questions.
His lawyer had written to the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu last Friday asking for bail for him.
But the IGP, in a response released earlier today, said the panel investigating the suspended EFCC chairman was the one holding him and not the police.
However, Magu was released on Wednesday evening and it was not certain if his release has anything to do with his lawyers’ letter.
Ibrahim Magu was being interrogated by the presidential panel on the bases of claims of misappropriation of recovered loots and confiscated properties levied against.
