Drama as Salami Orders Security Agents To Walk Out Magu’s Lawyers From Aso Rock venue

Justice Isa Salami

Justice Isa Salami- led Commission of Enquiry on Monday caused a stir when the former President of the Court of Appeal (PCA) directed security agents to walk out two lawyers, Prof Zainab Duke Abiola and Mr Aliyu Lemu from the venue of its sitting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The two lawyers are part of the legal team of the suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr Ibrahim Magu, who is being probed by Salami panel over alleged mismanagement of recovered assets and abuse of office.

Trouble began at about 11.50am when Mr Wahab Shittu, who has been appearing for Magu, stood up to introduce other members of the legal team.

But Justice Salami was said to have interrupted Shittu and insisted that only him would be allowed to defend Magu. The former PCA thereafter directed the fully armed security agents to bundle out the lawyers from the venue.
