As against the report by Channels TV which was reechoed by other media houses about a purported arrest of the Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Malam Ibrahim Magu, the DSS denied the report.
The Public Relations Officer, Department of State Services, Mr Peter Afunanya, Ph.D
National Headquarters, in Abuja yesterday, issued a statement denying the reports and said:
“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.” He concluded.
But the spokesman of the DSS in their usual modus has not shed any light on the reason behind the invitation of the EFCC Boss.
