Ekiti Govt. threatens Magu over arrest of Commissioner, AGThe Ekiti State House of Assembly has sent letter of protest to the Acting Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, over the arrest and detention of the Commissioner for Finance, Mr. Toyin Ojo, and the Accountant General, Mrs. Yemi Owolabi.

The letter, which was dated October 2, and signed by the Speaker, Mr. Kolawole Oluwawole, was delivered at the EFCC’s Abuja office on Tuesday. Read also: How I escaped death during civil war—Lalong

In the letter, the Assembly described the arrests of Ojo and Owolabi as “premeditated, malicious, politically motivated, contemptuous and unconstitutional in all ramifications,” saying it smacked of “gangsterism by an agency that derives its power from the constitution but acts in clear contempt of the rule of law.”

The Assembly accused Magu and the EFCC of disobedience to court orders. Read also: Man slump, dies after seeing pregnant wife with another man

“We, therefore, wish to put you on notice that should you fail to desist from further disobedience to the court order mentioned above by continuous infraction against the people and the government of Ekiti State, contempt proceeding will be initiated against you without delay,” the letter said.
