BREAKING - DSS Behaves To Reports Of Ibrahim Magu's Arrest

Ibrahim Magu / EFCC
The Department for State Security (DSS) on Monday has said Magu was merely summoned by the presidential panel over alleged corruption cases. He was picked up by an inter-agency panel set up by President Muhammadu Buhari at a traffic stop.
The agency failed to use the word 'arrest', according to a report by TheNation.
Recall that media reports of the arrest of acting Economic Financial and Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu went viral today.
TheNation further reported that Magu was stopped in traffic while moving out of the Wuse II Annex of the EFCC in Abuja and the invitation was extended to him.
He was said to be on his way to the Force Headquarters at the time and pleaded with an officer from FCID who met with him to honour the scheduled appointment.
But he was told the invitation by the panel was more important.
At about 1.35 pm, Magu arrived at the Villa where he was ushered into the wing, the newspaper reported.
As at Press time, Magu has been joined at the Villa by his lawyer, Rotimi Oyedepo.
The panel is said to be sitting at the Banquet Hall wing of the Presidential Villa.
It is believed that he was invited by the panel to defend himself against the 22 weighty allegations submitted in a memo by Abubakar Malami, Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice to  President Buhari sometime in June.
