Justice Ayo Salami, Chairman of the presidential panel investigating suspended Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission(EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, says he does not regret his appointment to serve in the panel contrary to speculations in the media.
The former Appeal Court President was reacting to reports of his purported regret as the chairman of the Panel investigating the suspended EFCC boss.
Justice Salami in a memo he personally signed and made available to newmen on Tuesday, said he would have ordinarily ignored the falsehood, but there is the need to put the records straight and expose the purveyor’s barefaced lies.
“The reports were a figment of the wild imagination of the reporter, the two lawyers quoted as his sources and the medium that published the story,” he said.
Magu is being investigated over allegations of abuse of office and mismanagement of recovered assets from May 2015 to May 2020 — the time he acted as chairman of the anti-graft agency.
Salami said the panel which he chairs will continue its investigation of the allegations against Magu with a view to unearthing the truth and ensuring that justice is done.
