Magu honours CCB invitation to declare assets

The suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu

The suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has honoured the invitation of the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) in Abuja.

Sources close to the matter also disclosed that the suspended EFCC boss was at the CCB office in Abuja on Thursday, December 3, 2020 with his lawyers over the CCB’s invitation on his asset declaration.

But Magu could not be attended to as the CCB was having its annual lecture with a theme titled: “Fighting Corruption for Socio-Economic Development”.

It was further gathered that Magu later visited the CCB on Friday, December 4, 2020 where he spent couple of hours for the interview on his asset declaration.

The CCB had earlier invited Magu on November 17, 2020 and asked him to come along with:

  • *Acknowledgement slips of all his assets declaration since he joined the public service.
  • *Copies of his Appointment Letter, Acceptance, Records of Service and payslips from January to May 2020.
  • *All title documents of his landed properties both developed and undeveloped.

But  Magu replied in his two letters to the CCB that he would not be able to honour its invitation on the grounds of lack of access to the relevant documents which the CCB is demanding from him.

Speaking through his lawyer, Wahab Shittu, Magu explained that he did not shun the CCB invitation as reported in certain sections of the media but only sought for a new date over lack of access to relevant documents.
