The embattled acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, spent the night in police custody on the orders of a presidential panel probing alleged infractions against him.
News correspondent reported how Mr Magu was arrested in front of the EFCC office in Abuja by security officials on Monday.
He was taken to the Presidential Villa, Abuja, where he appeared before a presidential panel investigating alleged corruption and insubordination.
The allegations of insubordination and ‘relooting of recovered funds’ were levelled against him by the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.
In separate statements on Monday, the SSS denied arresting the anti-graft chief while the EFCC said Mr Magu was only invited for questioning.
Similarly, the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption has also described Mr Magu as a victim of power play in the presidency.
