As the investigation into the corruption allegations levelled against the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, entered its fourth day on Thursday, the Secretary of the anti-graft body, Olanipekun Olukoyede and some of its directors have appeared before the panel.
Tribune Online learnt that they were questioned by the Justice Ayo Salami-led panel on what they know about the 21-point allegations raised by the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.The EFCC officials were said to have shed light into the investigation to enable the panel to reach a conclusion and necessary recommendations to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The panel continued its activity on Thursday at the presidential villa, the commission has been left without a clear administrative head as the presidency is yet to formally request any of its senior officials to act in that capacity.
However, Magu, who has continued to be held in detention while his residences have been searched, is said to be faced with the prospect of being removed from the post.
