Abubakar Malami - I'm willing to testify against Magu

Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), has said that if he is invited by the Justice Ayo Salami-led presidential investigative panel, he is ready to testify against the suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.

A panel headed by Mr Salami, a former president of the Court of Appeal, is currently investigating Mr Magu over allegations of graft and insubordination levelled against him by Mr Malami.

The complaint of Mr Malami led to the suspension of Mr Magu as acting EFCC chairman, after the investigation of the activities of the latter at the EFCC from May 2015 to May 2020.

The AGF was reacting to a letter by Wahab Shittu, counsel to Mr Magu, dated September 4 and addressed to the committee chairman, demanding that Mr Malami, appear before the panel to provide evidence regarding his allegations against his client.

He said that his appearance before the tribunal of Inquiry would ensure a fair hearing.
