The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, was on Wednesday, interrogated by the House of Representatives Committee on public Safety and National Intelligence, over allegations of missing $44 million in the coffers of the National Intelligence Agency, NIA.

Magu’s session with the Committee led by Aminu Sani Jaja, was however held in an Executive session, without media coverage.

Chairman of the Committee, Aminu Sani Jaja, had in his opening remarks at the investigation, expressed concern over the controversy surrounding the alleged missing $44 million belonging to the NIA.

Jaja told the EFCC Chairman that the Committee was ready to assist the Agency to tackle corruption, which has been the bane of development in the country.

He said he had confidence in the EFCC under the Leadership of Magu, to unravel the mystery surrounding the alleged missing $44 million, which he confirmed was part of the $289 million, earlier discovered at a private residence in Ikoyi, Lagos State.

Attempts to get the Chairman of the Committee to confirm what transpired at the session with the EFCC Chairman, were not successful.
