Obtain 28-day remand order for Magu, Fayose tells panel

Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has asked the Justice Ayo Salami-led presidential panel investigating the suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, to formalise his detention.

The former governor advised the panel to obtain a 28-day remand order from a court of law to give it ample time to complete the ongoing probe of the embattled ex-EFCC chair.

Magu, who was whisked away on Monday by security operatives, has since been detained by security operatives.

He has since applied to the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to be released on bail, according to a letter sent on his behalf by one of his lawyers, Oluwatosin Ojaomo, on Friday.

But commenting on the development on Saturday via his verified Twitter handle, Fayose said, “The Panel should formalise Magu’s detention by obtaining a 28-day remand order from a court to enable completion of investigations.

“The panel must equally get temporary and permanent forfeiture of loots linked to him. That’s Magu’s style and procedure while in office. He can’t complain now.”

He added, “Wahab Shittu, EFCC lawyer turned Magu’s defender understands their style, so why is he complaining? Or didn’t he work with Magu to secure court orders to detain people indefinitely and forfeit properties linked to people being investigated?”
