The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, may have finally been removed from office, The Guardian is reporting.
Also, a source at the EFCC also confirmed to Abusidiqu that Magu has been redeployed back to Nigerian Police Force (NPF) to pave way for a fresh person to be presented by President Muhammadu Buhari as the nominee to head the anti-graft agency before the Senate.
Magu’s sack The Guardian reports gathered came through the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, who in a letter issued to Magu directed him to hand over to the Director of Operations in the Commission.
It will be recalled that Malami had on the directive of the president issued a query to Magu following allegation of graft levelled against him by the Department of State Security Service (DSS).
The DSS allegation formed the basis of his rejection by the Senate.
A top source in the presidency who spoke on the condition of anonymity told Abusidiqu that Magu upon his redeployment back to the Nigerian Police Force would be asked to retire from the service.
