Magu was interrogated over allegations of corruption and brought before the Justice Ayo Salami-led Presidential panel.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Nigeria Police Force denied they are detaining him.

In a letter signed by DCP Idowu Owohunwa, Principal Staff Officer to the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu and addressed to Magu’s counsel, Tosin Ojaomo, the police made it clear that the suspended EFCC boss was being “held” by the Presidency.
