The Nigeria Police Force has disclaim detaining Ibrahim Magu, the suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

This was disclosed in a message signed by DCP Idowu Owohunwa, Principal Staff Officer to the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu.

The letter was directed to Magu’s lawyer, Tosin Ojaomo, in response to the application for his bail.

The police revealed clearly that Magu was being “held” by the Presidency.

“The Inspector-General directs that your attention be drawn to the fact that the Nigeria Police Force is not investigating Ibrahim Magu and he is accordingly not being detained by the police by the Presidential Panel that is investigating the activities of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

“The Inspector-General of Police, therefore, advises that you consider redirecting your request to the Chairman of the Presidential Panel for appropriate attention,” the letter reads.

Magu was arrested by a group of Department of State Services (DSS) and police officers last week and was moved to the Presidential Villa where he has continued to face different interrogation from a panel chaired by Ayo Salami, a retired Appeal Court judge.
