The police, in the letter was addressed to Magu’s counsel, Tosin Ojaomo, in response to his bail application, made it clear that Magu was being “held” by the Presidency.
The letter read in part: “The Inspector-General directs that your attention be drawn to the fact that the Nigeria Police Force is not investigating Ibrahim Magu and he is accordingly not being detained by the police by the Presidential Panel that is investigating the activities of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
“The Inspector-General of Police, therefore, advises that you consider redirecting your request to the Chairman of the Presidential Panel for appropriate attention.”
