The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission says its acting Chairman , Mr . Ibrahim Magu , is only facing an investigative panel and is not being detained by the Department of State Services.

The EFCC said this in a statement by its Spokesman , Dele Oyewale , on Monday.

The statement read in part, “Mr. Ibrahim Magu on Monday, July 6, 2020, honoured an invitation by a Presidential Panel reviewing the activities of the EFCC, at the Banquet Hall wing of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“ He was served the invitation to the panel while on his way to the Force Headquarters, Abuja for a meeting.
The EFCC’s boss was neither arrested nor forced to honour the invitation. A member of a legal team from the EFCC is also with him on the panel.”

Magu, who has been serving in acting capacity for almost five years, was invited after the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami ( SAN ), accused him of financial impropriety and corruption.
