The Code of Conduct Bureau has invited for questioning the suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu.
The invitation was contained in a letter signed by its Director of Intelligence, Investigation and Monitoring of the CCB, S. P. Gwimi, dated November 2, 2020.
In the letter, Magu was directed to report on November 17, 2020 for the questioning all acknowledged slips of asset declarations he made since he joined public service.
The letter reads: “The Bureau is investigating a case of alleged breach of Code of Conduct for Public Officer against Mr. Ibrahim Mustapha Magu, the former Acting Chairman, Economic & Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
“In view of the foregoing, you are invited for an interview scheduled an follows: Date: Tuesday 17 November, 2020. Time: 11am prompt.
“Venue: CCB Interview Room, 5th Floor, Annex 3, Federal Secretariat Complex, Shehu Shagari Way, Maitama Abuja.
“You are expected to come along with the Certified True Copies (CTC) of the following: Acknowledgement slips of all your Assets Declaration to Code of Conduct Bureau since you joined public service.
“Copies of your Appointment Letter, Acceptance, Records of Service and Pay Slips from Jaruary to May, 2020. All documents of your landed properties, both developed and undeveloped.
“The invitation is made pursuant to the mandate and power of the Bureau as enshrined in the 3 Schedule, Part 1, Paragraph 3 (e) to the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended; Section 137 (a) and (b) and 138 (a) and (b) of Penal Code Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990 and Section 104 of evidence Act 2011.”
Magu was suspended following his ongoing probe by a presidential panel headed by retired Justice Ayo Salami.
Though the initial basis for the probe was a letter by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, the Salami panel has since extended its probe of the Magu years in the EFCC.
