- Former EFCC Boss, Ibrahim Magu is being detained for alleged gross misconduct and embezzlement.
General Theophilus Danjuma has denied reports being circulated by the Chairman of ThisDay editorial board, Olusegun Adeniyi that he had issues with the former acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, leading to his arrest and suspension.
Former Head of State, General Abdulsalam Abubakar had also denied involvement in Magu’s travails.
Magu was said to have raided the home of Gen Abubakar and frozen the accounts of Gen TY Danjuma without the knowledge of the Presidency.
However, both retired Generals said they don’t have anything to do with the travails of Magu, who has been suspended as EFCC chairman and is currently alleged to be in detention.
Adeniyi quoted Daisy Danjuma, Director and the Chairman of the Board of Directors of May & Baker Nigeria, as saying that although they recently purchased a plane to replace the old one, there was no issue with the EFCC over the Cheque, which she said she signed.
She said her husband, TY Danjuma, did not complain about Magu to her.
Magu is under investigation by a presidential committee over multiple allegations of embezzlement and misconduct.
