The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, reportedly spent last night in police cell after he was quizzed for about six hours by a Presidential panel headed by Justice Isa Salami, a former President of the Court of Appeal.

It was gathered that Magu was detained at the Force Criminal Investigation Department Headquarters in Area 10, Garki, Abuja.

Magu is also expected to face further interrogation today Tuesday at the Presidential Villa.

The embattled EFCC boss was arrested on Monday afternoon and taken to the panel after he allegedly snubbed previous invitations extended to him.

Magu was arrested when a detachment of Department of State Services personnel intercepted his convoy in traffic at Wuse II and forcefully took him to the panel where he was questioned on discrepancies observed in recovered funds by his agency.

There are also reports that the acting EFCC boss may not return to office as the Presidency was already working on replacing him.
