According to reports, Magu also presented evidence to justify the raid on the Ikoyi apartment.


Reports say the Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo led panel grilled the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu for hours.

According to Daily Trust, Magu also presented evidence to justify the raid on the Ikoyi apartment.

A source also revealed that the evidence which the acting EFCC boss presented to the panel is weighty enough.

Another source, according to Daily Post, said “The meeting with Magu was part of the assignment of the committee. He was asked questions on the operation and as expected he justified it.”

The Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike claimed ownership of the money found in the Ikoyi apartment, adding that it was stolen during Rotimi Amaechi’s administration.

The Osinbajo panel is also expected to also investigate allegations of corruption levelled against the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal.
