The suspended Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu has regained his freedom.
He was freed from the custody of the police which had held him for 10 days.
Magu’s lawyer Tosin Ojaomo who has been demanding for his client’s bail from the Insoector General of Police insisted that the suspended Chairman had satisfactorily provided answers to questions raised by the Ayo Salami Panel that has been investigating him.
The IGP who ordered the release of Magu Wednesday also wrote Ojaomo to intimate him of the decision reached by the police.The presidency which set up the probe has continued to insist that the probe of Magu was evidence of its ant-corruption stance and a unique opportunity for him to clear himself of disturbing accusations.
Meanwhile, heads of departments in the EFCC have been sent on suspension. The order to send them on suspension is not unconnected with the ongoing investigation into the affairs of the anti-graft Commission.
