The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has said that the agency will invite former president, Goodluck Jonathan for questioning in due time.

Magu made the comment over the weekend during a visit to the office of the BBC Hausa service in London, according to Daily Trust.

“Anybody that is involved in this scandal, we will invite him. It is only that we have to first establish our evidence,” the EFCC boss said after being asked when Jonathan would be summoned since the arms deal fraud occurred during his administration.

“Anybody who is guilty, I swear, we will summon him wherever he is. And we have never invited anybody who is guilty. Anybody that we invited, we must have finished with our background study on him.

“We spend not just days for the background work but months until we establish the case before we issue invitation. That is why none of the people we invited has come out clean.

“Whoever stole public funds and we establish our evidence, I'm telling you we will invite him, without cover. That is how the work is. We compile dossiers of proofs and facts before we invite," he added.

The EFCC had earlier said that it had not gotten any evidence to enable it charge Jonathan with corruption.
