Suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has been released after facing a presidential panel in Aso Rock.
Magu has been detained in a police facility in Abuja for an alleged corrupt practices.
He has been appearing before a presidential panel investigating allegations of corruption and insubordination levelled against him by Abubakar Malami, Nigeria’s justice minister.
His lawyer had written Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector General of Police last Friday asking for bail for him.
But the IGP, in a response released earlier today said the panel investigating the suspended EFCC Chairman is the one holding him.
However, Magu was released on Wednesday evening and it was not certain if his release has anything to do with his lawyers’ letter.
On June 11, President Muhammadu Buhari affirmed the suspension of Mr Magu and it took effect immediately.
