and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday, January 19, has given
the assurance that the commission will adhere to court orders.
He added that the war against graft was not about him or the EFCC but about all Nigerians who want to see Nigeria move forward.
Magu made this assertion at a media briefing in Abuja saying that the
anti-graft body has no reason to disobey courts, Leadership reports.
The EFCC boss stressed that the need to make this clarification
became necessary following consistent criticism from prominent members
of society who accused the commission of disobeying court orders.
Magu said: “We have never had any course to disobey any court
order and we will not disobey any. It is not about me, it is about the
desire to move this country forward.”
A particular case that irked some lawyers was the re-arresting of the
former national security adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd), the
director general of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety
Agency, Patrick Akpobolokemi and Nnamdi Kanu, the director of Radio
Biafra immediately after the men were granted bail.
The youths protested at the Lagos state House of Assembly to register
their displeasure, demanding that the president be impeached by the
National Assembly if he refused to change.
