ACTING Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, was at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday, to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.
He came into the premises at about 3.15 p.m in the company of his police orderly.
Magu, who clutched an office flat file with EFCC logo in his right hand, spent less than 10 minutes in the president’s office.
It was not clear whether he was able to see the president who was inaugurating the National Research and Innovation Council (NRIC) about the same time.
On returning from the president’s office, State House correspondents sought to interview him but he declined, saying: “not now, not now.”
Magu’s visit to the Villa came barely 24 hours after the EFCC arrested Buhari’s ally and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Military Administrator of Kaduna State, Brigadier General Lawal Ja’afaru Isa.
The president’s critics are accusing him of using the EFCC as a witch-hunt against political opponents, a claim denied by the Presidency.
