Justice Ayo Salami, the head of the Presidential panel investigating the suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, on Monday directed security operatives 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 embattled EFCC boss, who is being probed by the Salami panel over alleged mismanagement of recovered assets and abuse of office.
Information gathered revealed that the drama started at about 11:50am, when Mr Wahab Shittu, who has been appearing for Magu, stood up to introduce other members of the legal team.
It was reported that Justice Salami interrupted Shittu and insisted that only him would be allowed to defend Magu.
The former President of the Court of Appeal thereafter directed armed security agents to bundle out the lawyers from the venue.
