EFCC: Justice Salami sends two members of Magu’s legal team out
The ongoing probe of the suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, took a different turn yesterday as Justice Ayo Salami sent Magu’s lawyers out of the venue.
Salami reportedly ordered security operatives to walk out two lawyers on the legal team of former EFCC boss shortly after they were introduced by lead lawyer, Wahab Shittu.
According to reports, Shittu introduced the two lawyers as members of Magu’s legal team but was interrupted by Justice Salami who insisted that only Shittu would be allowed to defend the suspended EFCC acting chairman.
The suspended EFCC Chairman had last week asked the panel to recall the witnesses who earlier testified against him in his absence at the ongoing corruption probe with the claim that the request to recall several witnesses was in the interest of fair hearing.
Magu’s letter was dated September 4 and addressed to the Chairman of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry, through his counsel, Wahab Shittu.
