Ibrahim Magu, the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was at a gathering to strategise on the re-election campaign of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The event, which held on Tuesday at Nicon Luxury Hotel in Abuja, was exclusively billed as a consultative forum for politicians of the ruling All Progress Congress. It was put together by the National Committee of Buhari Support Groups, a political action committee loyal to President Buhari.
Mr Magu was sighted at the event wearing his signature black suit, seating amidst APC heavyweights like Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who represented an out-of-town Mr Buhari, and Bola Tinubu, a national leader of the party.
Instructively, Mr Magu was in Lagos hours apart, defending himself and the EFCC as apolitical, the Vanguard reported.
