The Nation reports that the embattled anti-graft czar also asked that all the proceedings must be videoed but both requests were turned down by the Justice Ayo Salami led-panel on the grounds that it was not necessary.

“That the request of Mr. Magu for the video recordings of the proceedings cannot be granted because the previous recordings of the proceedings at the beginning were unauthorised by the investigation committee.

“The committee said it does not know the purpose such recordings would serve. Justice Salami also said the venue of the sitting of the committee is temporarily making it impossible to install video recording equipment as requested by Magu,” the paper quoted the unnamed source said to be privy to the situation as saying.

Magu is under investigation for alleged financial malfeasance at the agency and insubordination.
