Magu should not complain about how he’s being treated, they’re using his own ‘style’ —Fayose

IGP’S CONFLICTING COMMENTS ON LEAH SHARIBU: Confusion now reigns supreme in Buhari’s govt –Fayose

Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Saturday asked the presidential panel investigating the suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, to formalise his detention.

Fayose, who made the call via his official Twitter handle, implored the panel headed by a former president of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami, to obtain a 28-day remand order from court to give it sufficient time to complete the EFCC chief’s investigation for alleged corruption and insubordination.

Magu, who has been in detention since Monday, applied for bail through one of his lawyers, Oluwatosin Ojaomo, Friday.

The ex-governor said:

“The panel should formalise Magu’s detention by obtaining 28-day remand order from court to enable completion of investigations.

“The panel must equally get temporary and permanent forfeiture of loots linked to him. That’s Magu’s style and procedure while in office. He can’t complain now.

“Wahab Shittu, EFCC lawyer turned Magu’s defender understands their style, so why is he complaining? Or didn’t he work with Magu to secure court orders to detain people indefinitely and forfeit properties linked to people being investigated?”

Fayose has a pending case with the EFCC having been arrested, detained and interrogated by the agency.
