The EFCC boss, who also appeared before a Presidential Investigative Panel on Anti-corruption chaired by Justice Ayo Salami, at the Villa yesterday, has been slammed with several allegations from the memo submitted by the Attorney General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
