Legal counsel to embatted EFCC acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, Tosin Ojaomo has said, said it’s unfortunate that the panel could invite someone facing corruption charges to testify against his client, Magu.
In a telephone chat with Punch, Ojaomo admitted that Obla was being owed funds but said the EFCC had to verify the fee before payment could be made.
“Really it’s inexplicable, unexplainable, strange and the height of absurdity for a panel on a serious matter like this kind of investigation to be inviting suspects standing trial to testify against their prosecutor.
“The salami panel is offering its platform to those aggrieved one way or the other against Magu by inviting them to make presentations. The presentations/ allegations were not made available to Magu.
“Even elements with pending corruption cases in court are invited. People being prosecuted by the prosecuting agency are making wild allegations even when pending allegations have yet to be cleared in court.”
