The former governor alleged that properties seized by EFCC were bought by associates of Magu, including some so-called human rights lawyers.

He said Nigerians must know beneficiaries of the seized properties and how they were sold.

Fayose also stated that those holding money and properties in trust for Magu as well as those who must have helped him to launder money must be revealed and brought to book.

Below are tweets by Fayose making the allegations against Magu:

Meanwhile, Wahab Shittu, a counsel to the suspended acting chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, on Friday, July 10, pleaded with the presidential investigation committee to grant his client bail.

The Nation reports that he said Magu needed the bail because the print and electronic media had taken undue advantage of his detention to launch a campaign of calumny against him.

Legit.ng gathered that Shittu made six other demands including making the terms of reference of the committee available to Magu and giving him the opportunity to know the allegations against him.

Shittu made the demands on Friday, July 10, in a letter of plea to the panel.
