The EFCC officials were said to have shed light into the investigation to enable the panel to reach a conclusion and necessary recommendations to President Muhammadu Buhari.

As the panel continued its activity on Thursday at the presidential villa, the EFCC has been left without a clear administrative head as the presidency is yet to formally request any of its senior officials to act in that capacity.

Magu is facing 21 corruption allegation from the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.

We reliably gathered that the Justice Ayo Salami-led panel summoned the top management officers from the commission to give insight on some of the allegations against the embattled Chairman.
