Ibrahim Magu on Wednesday told the Ayo Salami probe panel investigating him of corruption that he had never received a bribe in his life.

The suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), therefore, said anyone who ever gave him a bribe and he received it should come out “publicly to confront him before the… panel”

Channels TV reports that Magu stated this in response to the allegations that he allowed a suspect, Hima Aboubakar, a Nigerien National to escape from justice.
