The suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, was on Wednesday evening released from detention.
It was not clear in whose custody Magu has been as the Nigerian Police said they have nothing to do with his detention.
Presidential Spokesman, Femi Adesina said on Wednesday night that the Presidency does not have anything to do with Magu’s detention.
According to him, the panel that investigated Magu only used the Presidential Banquet Hall and Magu could not have been detained there.
Asked in whose custody Magu would have been in his ten days of incarceration, Adesina said, “I am just a Presidential spokesperson, ask the security”.
Magu had written to the Inspector General of Police asking for a bail but was not granted because the police said they were not in a position to do that.
Unconfirmed sources said all allegations of huge hard currencies and other things found with Magu were strange to the panel that quizzed him.
Patmos Media Line had reported earlier on that Magu’s office was sealed after his suspension while 12 of his top officers including EFCC Executive Secretary were Wednesday night shoved out of office by a letter from the office of the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
It will be recalled that the embattled anti-graft chief was arrested last week Monday and has been detained by the police since then.
President Muhammadu Buhari last week approved his suspension and appointed another acting Chairman following series of alleged corrupt practices leveled against him.
He has been appearing before a presidential panel investigating allegations of corruption and insubordination leveled against him by the Anthony General, Abubakar Malami.
