- Ibrahim Magu is still being faced with a deluge of corruption allegations triggered by Abubakar Malami's memo
- The suspended EFCC boss faces tricky hurdle of redeeming himself after being confronted with integrity inquests by the federal government
- Four unit heads of the EFCC have submitted vital documents to the panel probing the embattled anti-corruption czar
Ibrahim Magu is still entangled in integrity test as four unit heads of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) submitted vital documents to the presidential panel investigating the embattled anti-graft sheriff.
Magu is being held over allegations bordering on insubordination and corruption following a recent memo by the attorney-general of the federation, Abubakar Malami, indicting the suspended EFCC boss.
As different dusts raise, the retired justice Ayo Salami-led panel investigating Magu may have found fresh holes in his anti-graft fight with more documents now set to open more lids on how Magu allegedly ran EFCC like an empire.
The EFCC unit heads first appeared before the Salami-led panel on Tuesday, July 7, twenty-four hours after Magu was grilled over abuse of office.
The senior officials of the agency presented some documents to the panel which may further shed more light on 21 corruption allegations levelled against the suspended EFCC chairman.
Magu, who is still in detention, has been replaced by the EFCC director of operations, Umar Mohammed, in what is suggesting an end to his era.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that as the probe by the Presidential Committee on Audit of Recovered Assets (PCARA) on Magu continues, some top operatives of the EFCC are now regarded as persons of interest.
In light of this, the federal government has ordered the deployment of security and intelligence agencies at the headquarters of the EFCC in Abuja and all its offices throughout Nigeria.
The movement and telephone conversations of some persons regarded as “Magu Boys” are being monitored and restricted.
