Shehu said the Presidency had been receiving some little updates from the Justice Ayo Salami-led panel and the findings would surprise Nigerians.
He, therefore, asked Nigerians to ignore the outbursts of certain persons who have questioned the probe.
On claims by Magu’s lawyers that the probe was a witch-hunt, Shehu reacted saying, “I guess this is a question for the Justice Ayo Salami panel and I must say that panel is composed of some of this country’s most honored people with integrity who will do the right thing.
“I am not going to pre-empt the panel investigation but I just advise Nigerians to hold their hearts in their hands. By the time they are done with this job and they come out with the reports prepare yourselves for surprises.
“I don’t know what will come out but if the sense we are getting from what is being done over there is anything to go by, I think that Nigerians should not be confused by any outbursts by anybody.”
Among the many allegations brought against Magu is that he bought a house in Dubai worth over N550m while the interest accrued to N550bn recovered funds could not be accounted for.
The Presidency had suspended Magu and about 11 directors of the EFCC to allow for a seamless investigation.
