The suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has dismissed the bribery allegations leveled against him.
Magu stated this in a statement after he opened his defense on the alleged abuse of office and mismanagement of recovered assets on Monday.
The EFCC chairman was questioned by a presidential panel headed by a former President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami.
Magu, who responded to claims that he allowed a Nigerien, Hima Aboubakar, to escape justice, challenged anyone who had ever offered him a bribe to “come out publicly to confront him before the panel.”
The anti-graft czar insisted that he has never received bribe in his life.
