The suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has explained why he failed to honour the invitation of the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
Recall that it was reported that CCB is planning to charge Magu for failing to declare his assets after failing to honour the invitation of the bureau.
Quoting portions of Magu’s letter in a statement on Sunday titled, ‘CCB invitation: Magu lacks access to relevant documents – Lawyer’ the embattled former EFCC boss lawyer Wahab Shittu said some of the documents requested by the CBB have been seized by the DSS and the retired Justice Ayo Salami-led panel.
He stated that Magu told the CCB that DSS removed the documents from his office while he was in detention following his suspension from office to pave the way for his probe by the panel.
Mr. Wahab Shittu also asked the CCB to reschedule the invitation till when Magu would have access to his office and the relevant documents.
He said, “We wish to state that our client did not shun the CCB invitation as the media reportage did not reflect the true position of the narrative.
“We wish to state with high sense of responsibility that we have written two letters to the Chairman of the CBB, intimating him about the inability of our client to have access to the relevant documents as required by the CCB.”
