Legal luminary, Mike Ozekhome, today announced that he would be appearing before the Justice Salami-led investigative panel which is presently probing the suspended EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu, at the State House in Abuja.
Mr Ozekhome, who briefed the media this morning on the recent invitation, said he would be submitting a written presentation containing 80 pages, 185 exhibits, five videos and 33 recommendations to the secretary of the panel. Though he said he would be submitting a written presentation because the panel had earlier informed him of it not having enough time and could therefore not take much material from him via an oral testimony.

Speaking further, the lawyer also said that his written document will be aiming to retool the anti-corruption fight of the federal government.

Our readers will remember that Mr. Ozekhome had earlier appeared before the panel in July where he had initially submitted six exhibits, including two video clips and some documents.

Mr Magu is currently being investigated for allegedly diverting millions of Naira from recovered funds as well as interest accruing on them. The Salami Panel headed by Justice Ayo Salami, a former president of the Court of Appeal, has been probing the suspended anti corruption Czar following the establishment of a Judicial Commission of Enquiry under the Tribunals of Inquiry Act (Cap T21, LFN, 2004), for the investigation of the activities of the EFCC from May 2015 to May 2020.
