I have not sacked Ibrahim Magu as EFCC chair – Buhari

The Presidency has denied that EFCC’s Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu has been sacked.

One of President Buhari’s spokesperson broke the news in a series of messages published on one of his social media handles.

Garba Shehu said, “no report has been made available to the Presidency by the Attorney General of the federation over the matter.”

The Senate had rejected Magi’s nomination on the grounds of  “security reports” tendered to her by DSS.

The report had listed several corrupt practices against the EFCC boss.

The report said Ibrahim Magu’s confirmation would frustrate the anti-graft drive of the Buhari-led administration.

Part of the allegations against Magu was his being in possession of EFCC documents in his private residence during the chairmanship of Farida Waziri.

The DSS also made reference to the circumstances surrounding Magu’s arrest, detention, and suspension by the Nigeria Police.
