The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu has given reasons why former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki is still in detention for the alleged diversion of arms deal fund to the tune of $2.1 billion.

The NSA to the immediate past administration, according to Magu, is being detained in line with the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015, which gives the prosecution the powers to apply to the court for extension of detention period.
Magu revealed this during his controversial screening by the Senate today, 15th of March, 2017.

Recall that the Acting EFCC Chairman was rejected again by the Senate.

He stated, “At times in the course of interrogation, some facts do come up that would require further investigation. We don’t detain people unnecessarily.”

Magu further said that the EFCC will focus on prevention of corruption and that there was need for the understanding that “change must begin with us.”

He said the EFCC was determined to ensure an enabling environment and that the judiciary was key to the fight against corruption
