Magu Unable To Submit Defence To Presidential Panel

Contrary to widespread speculations, the suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has not submitted his defense to the Presidential Panel investigating him.

His lawyer, Wahab Shittu told Channels Television on Thursday, that they arrived at the Villa at about 9:30 am on the invitation of the panel, but the panel did not attend to them even until 7:00 pm when it concluded sitting for the day.

Magu had arrived at the venue with a view to submitting his defense with certain annexures. But he was unable to do so since the panel did not attend to him.

The panel had invited him on Wednesday, saying that it would confront Magu with the allegations against him and receive his defense accordingly, but Mr Shittu said his client was yet to be served with the allegations.

The lawyer added that he will return with his client to the Villa again on Friday.
