It was earlier reported that EFCC acting chairman Ibrahim Magu was arrested by the Department of State Service over allegations of corruption.
The Department of State Services (DSS) in a recent statement has debunked the report that Ibrahim Magu was arrested by the agency.
The DSS in a curt statement provided by a spokesman, Peter Afunanya, said it did not arrest Ibrahim Magu.
The short statement released by the DSS this Monday afternoon reads:
“The Department of State Services (DSS) wishes to inform the public that it did not arrest Ibrahim Magu, Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as has been reported by sections of the media. The Service, has since, today, 6th July 2020, been inundated with enquiries over the alleged arrest of Ibrahim Magu.”
Despite the rebuttal, it was gathered that DSS actually blocked Magu in Wuse traffic shortly after he left his office.
He was then taken to the Presidential Villa. Magu is being reportedly grilled over allegations against him.
