COMPLETE GOOD NEWS can confirm that the Acting Chairman of the Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu have been finally removed from office.
A source close to The Guardian Newspaper confirmed that his redeployment back to Nigerian Police Force (NPF) was 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.
The Guardian reports that to make the situation look like a routine exercise, some senior Police officers would be re-deployed by the Police hierarchy to resume as conventional Police officers.
It was equally reliably gathered yesterday that the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has already issued a leter to Magu on the development and directed that he hands over to the Director of Operations in the Commission.
Magu’s nomination was recently rejected by the Senate following allegation of graft levelled against him by the Department of State Security Service (DSS).
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 News agency that Magu upon his redeployment back to the Nigerian Police Force would be asked to retired from the service.
