Magu stated that the DSS removed the documents from his office while he was in detention following his suspension from office to pave the way for his probe by the Salami-led panel.

The suspended EFCC boss stated this in his two letters dated November 16 and 17, 2020 sent to the CCB Chairman, Prof. Muhammad Isah, to explain his inability to honour the November 17, 2020 invitation by the bureau.

His lawyer, Wahab Shittu, on Sunday quoted portions of the letters in a statement, titled, ‘CCB invitation: Magu lacks access to relevant documents – Lawyer’.

He also sought a reschedule of the invitation till when he would have access to his office and the relevant documents.

The Salami panel submitted its report to President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday.

The CCB had invited Magu via a letter, dated November 2, 2020.

He was asked to appear before the anti-corruption agency on November 17, 2020.

Magu was asked to come along with acknowledgment copies of all his asset declaration forms since joining the public service as well as his pay slips and land documents.

Shittu, on Sunday, denied that his client shunned the November 17, 2020 invitation by the CCB.
