For the suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, the horizon continues to look dark.
The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) has opened investigations into his assets and he is expected to appear before the Bureau on Tuesday, November 17.
The Next Edition recalls that Magu is already being investigated by a presidential panel, headed by a former President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami, over alleged misappropriation of recovered asset under his headship of the anti-graft body.
Fresh trouble, it was gathered, began when the CCB in a letter dated November 2, 2020, and signed by its Director of Intelligence, Investigation, and Monitoring, S.P. Gwimi, asked Magu to appear before it along with documents of his assets.
The letter read in part: “The Bureau is investigating a case of an alleged breach of Code of Conduct for Public Officer against Mr. Ibrahim Mustapha Magu, the former acting chairman, Economic & Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
“In view of the foregoing, you are invited for an interview scheduled as follows: Date: Tuesday, November 17, 2020. Time: 11 am Prompt. Venue: CCB Interview Room, 5th Floor, Annex 3, Federal Secretariat Complex, Shehu Shagari Way, Maitama, Abuja.

“The invitation is made pursuant to the mandate and power of the Bureau as enshrined in the 3rd Schedule, Part 1, Paragraph 3 (e) to the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as amended; Section 137 (a) and (b) and 138 (a) and (b) of Penal Code Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990 and Section 104 of Evidence Act 2011.”
