The suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has written to the Justice Ayo Salami led presidential probe panel investigating allegations of corruption and insubordination filed against him by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, asking for copies of the AGF’s petition and others that might have been filed by other individuals.

Magu, who regained his freedom after 10 days in detention, also called the panel’s attention to what he described as “serial falsehood on publications in the media in respect of matters which never featured in the proceedings” of the panel, saying they were prejudicial to the work of the probe panel.

The former anti-graft chief, in a 16-point letter signed by his lawyer, Wahab Shittu, complained that despite his request, he had been denied copies of the allegations against him.

The letter also demanded a copy of the report of the Presidential Audit Committee, a copy of the memo of the AGF to President Muhammadu Buhari, and individual petitions submitted to the panel.

The letter further cited 13 publications in the media which Magu said were orchestrated to prejudice the proceedings against him and dismissed them as false.

Magu, who was arrested on July 6 by the police at the Abuja zonal office of the EFCC to face the presidential probe panel, regained his freedom on Wednesday.
