One of our editors was among journalists to which the document was sent. The letter appeared to have been written in response to a request by Mr. Malami that the SSS should provide documentary evidence of its allegations against the acting EFCC chair. In its response, the SSS, through one Folashade Bello, sent the minister at least 12 documents. One of the documents contained minutes of the 20th plenary meeting of the Police Service Commission in 2010 which reportedly reprimanded Mr Magu.
