The suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has called on the Judicial Commission of Inquiry investigating him, to summon the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, so that his Lawyers can cross-examine him on the credibility of the allegations he made against him,
The suspended EFCC Chairman made the appeal through by his Lawyer, Wahab Shittu.
Magu, in the letter, sought for permission to subpoena Malami to appear before the Panel, stressing that he is entitled to fair hearing, as guaranteed by the 1999 Constitution, as amended.
Magu explained that his fundamental human right allows him to “confront his main accuser”, Abubakar Malami.
The letter reads partly: “We hereby apply for the issuance of a Subpoena Ad Testificandum and Subpoena Duces Tecum on the Honourable Attorney-General of the Federation, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN), to appear before this Judicial Commission of Inquiry, to give evidence concerning his memo to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari in connection with the subject matter of this inquiry titled: ‘FLAGRANT ABUSE OF PUBLIC OFFICE AND OTHER INFRACTIONS COMMITTED BY MR. IBRAHIM MAGU, ACTING CHAIRMAN ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL CRIMES COMMISSION (EFCC) BEING EXTRACTS OF PENDING PETITIONS’.”
