CCB investigating Magu over alleged non-disclosure of some bank accounts


It seems the cup of investigation would not pass from suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, anytime soon.

Magu has been subject of investigation with President Muhammadu Buhari setting up a panel headed by a former President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami, to look into allegations of using is office as EFCC chair to enrich himself.

If unofficial account is anything to go by, the panel found him guilty and recommended his sack to Buhari.

The latest, according to, is that the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB, is investigating him for alleged non-disclosure of some bank accounts he is accused of operating in his Asset Declaration Form.

The report added that the embattled anti-graft czar has declined invitation by the CCB for questioning citing alleged lack of access to his office.

“The CCB had invited Magu via a letter with reference number CCB/HQ/II&M/007/2093 dated November 2, 2020. He was asked to appear before the anti-corruption agency on November 17, 2020.

“The suspended EFCC boss was asked to come along with acknowledgment copies of all asset declaration forms since joining the public service as well as his payslips and land documents.

“It was, however, learnt that Magu failed to honour the request of the CCB but wrote a letter instead, explaining that he would not be able to do so,” the paper wrote.
