In his reaction, the former governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Peter Ayo Fayose said the embattled Magu detained for 28 days through court order.

Fayose told the panel to use Magu’s style and procedure while he held sway as EFCC boss to treat him.

On his twitter, he wrote: “The panel should formalise Magu’s detention by obtaining remand order from Court to enable completion of investigations.

“The panel must equally get temporary and permanent forfeiture of loots linked to him. That’s Magu’s style and procedure while in office.

Fayose told Magu’s lawyer, Wahab Shittu to stop complaining, while reminding him of how he used detain Nigerians.

“Wahab Shittu, EFCC’s lawyer turned Magu’s defender understands their style, so why is he complaining now?
