Detained suspended Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has cried out.
Speaking through his lawyer, Wahab Shittu, he said;
“The allegation that our client was grilled by the Panel on Monday, 13th July, 2020, as reported above is complete falsehood.”
“The correct position was that our client and his Counsel (Mr. Wahab Shittu) arrived the venue of the ongoing Investigations on Monday 13th July, 2020 by 9am. Our client and his Counsel were kept at the waiting room of the venue of the sittings unattended from 9am to 9pm when our client was taken back to custody.”
“This followed the same pattern on Thursday and Friday last week when our client waited for 12 hours without being called upon by the Panel to partake in the proceedings.”
“Witnesses called by the Panel were interrogated by the Panel without the participation of our client or his Counsel in the proceedings. This was also the pattern on Tuesday, 14th July, 2020. Our client chose to wait patiently on the panel.”
