Department of State Services (DSS) has rebutted the alleged arrest of Ibrahim Magu, the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) by officials of the service.
This was declared by the Service’ Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya, in a statement on Monday.
He stated that the DSS has been swamped with inquiries over the reported arrest of Magu by DSS officials in Abuja, stressing that the Service has no connection with the incident.
According to Channels TV, Magu’s special adviser on Media, Tony Amokeodo, also stated that his boss was not arrested but only invited to answer questions regarding some allegations against the agency.
Amokeodo explained that Magu was invited to appear before a Federal Government panel set up to investigate the allegations of corruption levelled against him.
According to him, the panel is sitting at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
