The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has communicated worries over the arrest of acting director of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.

SERAP said that Magu may have been captured because of a “strategic maneuver at the most significant levels of government”.

The EFCC supervisor is as yet being confined in police guardianship on the sets of a presidential board testing asserted infractions against him.

On Tuesday, SERAP’s Deputy Director Kolawole Oluwadare, stated: “The detailed explanation by an individual from PACAC implies that Magu’s capture might be politically persuaded and means to sabotage the autonomy and opportunity of activity of the EFCC”.

The body check said assuming valid, it would make a joke of President Muhammadu Buhari’s frequently rehashed promise to battle excellent debasement and the exemption of culprits.

SERAP asked the specialists to manage the cost of Magu his unavoidably and universally ensured reasonable preliminary rights.

It expressed that Magu should either be accused of an unmistakable criminal offense or discharged promptly and permitted to carry out his responsibility unafraid of backlashes.

The body said Nigerian specialists can’t keep on keeping Magu in detainment under dubious conditions without getting any authentic charges against him infringement of national and universal law.

It included that they should bolster the autonomy and opportunity of activity of hostile to debasement organizations and foundations on the off chance that they are to have the option to truly battle amazing defilement.

“Nigerian specialists should concentrate on tending to the effect of debasement, for example, political brutality, and forswearing of access for many Nigerians to even the most essential wellbeing and instruction administrations, just as different examples of human rights infringement.”

SERAP demanded that improving the autonomy of hostile to defilement offices and organizations is the most encouraging approach to gain substantial ground in the battle against debasement now and sooner rather than later.
