Nigerian former Senator and Activist, Shehu Sani who is also facing trial by the Economic and Finacial Crimes Commission has said the media learnt from the embattled EFCC Chairman Ibrahim Magu.

Senator Sani responded to a tweet by the EFCC following statements by the commission denying arrests of its Chairman Monday.

Sani wrote, “You invited me,I voluntarily honored with my lawyer and you fed the media with the news that I was arrested.They learnt from you”.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission said its acting Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, is only facing an investigative panel and is not being detained by the Department of State Services.

The EFCC said this in a statement by its Spokesman, Dele Oyewale, on Monday.

The statement read in part, “Mr. Ibrahim Magu on Monday,  July 6,  2020, honoured an invitation by a Presidential Panel reviewing the activities of the EFCC, at the Banquet Hall wing of the Presidential Villa,  Abuja.

“He was served the invitation to the panel while on his way to the Force Headquarters, Abuja for a meeting.   The EFCC’s boss was neither arrested nor forced to honour the invitation.  A member of a legal team from the EFCC is also with him on the panel.”

Magu, who has been serving in acting capacity for almost five years, was invited after the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), accused him of financial impropriety and corruption.
