Nigeria: Nigerian Presidency Summons Anti-Graft Chief Over Asset Sales

Nigeria’s presidency summoned the head of the nation’s anti-corruption body to discuss the sale of seized assets.

Economic and Financial Crimes Commission acting Chairman Ibrahim Magu attended the meeting after receiving an invitation from a presidential panel while en route to another meeting, the agency said Monday in an emailed statement. It denied a report by online newspaper The Cable that Magu had been arrested.

“The EFCC’s boss was neither arrested nor forced to honor the invitation,” it said. “A member of a legal team from the EFCC is also with him on the panel.”
