Apparently seeing that the Presidency may keep him in detention indefinitely until he answers allegations made against him by the Attorney General, Vanguard gathered yesterday that embattled Chairman of coque samsung a10 transparante Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, may go on hunger strike.
