Magu to finally appear before CCB over false declaration of asset.


Former acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu now suspended has presented himself before the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) in Abuja.

Earlier, the CCB has suspended Magu over alleged misappropriation of recovered assets under his watch.

The summon letter dated November 2, 2020, CCB asked Magu “to come along with the certified true copies (CTC) of the following: Acknowledgement slips of all your assets declaration to the Code of Conduct Bureau since you joined public service. Copies of your appointment letter, acceptance, records of service and pay slips from January to May 2020. All documents of your landed properties, both developed and undeveloped”.

However, Magu through his lawyer, Wahab Shittu, had asked the CCB for time to enable him gain access to the relevant documents as required.

But a source told TheCable that the suspended EFCC chairman was at CCB office in Abuja on Thursday.

The source said Magu could not be attended to as the CCB was having CCB was having its annual lecture with its theme “fighting corruption for socio-economic development”.

Consequently, Magu returned to the CCB on Friday, December 4 where he was questioned for hours.

According to an earlier report monitored on TheCable, it was stated that the CCB would prosecute Magu for allegedly failing to list dormant a bank account (First Bank) and a property in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, in his asset declaration form.
