Mr. Dennis Amachree, a former Assistant Director with the Department of State Services has reacted to the questioning the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu has been subjected to. 

While speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Tuesday July 7, Amachree said that the Attorney-General of the Federation remained the supervising authority over the EFCC just as the Department of Justice oversees the activities of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the United States.

Also making a clarification on the arrest of Magu who he accused of becoming a law to himself and refusing to submit to constituted authority, the former DSS Asssitant Director said the anti-graft agency’s acting Chairman was not arrested by the DSS but by policemen attached to the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department.

Amachree said; 

 “I think Magu has some blame on his side. Apparently, he was operating as a law unto himself. He must be reporting to somebody. Even in the US, the FBI reports to the Department of Justice. In Nigeria, EFCC ought to report to the AGF who is now the originator of the allegations.

“When this thing came up, they knew he may not want to come, I don’t know, but he was stopped on the way to another meeting but they said he must go before the panel. He was accosted by policemen from the FCID.

“However, because they were policemen in plain clothes, many people thought it was the DSS.”
