Additionally, Magu revealed that the Commission recorded 62 convictions in the first quarter of the year.

NAIJ.com recalls that Magu was interrogated by the Presidential Investigative Committee led by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo just a day earlier on Friday, April 21, where he had to provide justification for the around N13billion seized from Apartment 7B at the Osbourne Towers in Ikoyi area of Lagos state.

Magu was directed to continue investigations into the matter by the committee that also include attorney-general of the federation Abubakar Malami and national security adviser Alhaji Monguno.

Later that day, the Commission also made a massive pledge to Nigerians that it would not disappoint the populace who are expecting a lot from the anti-corruption agency.
