Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, has been reportedly arrested by officers of the Department of State Services.
According to Punch, Magu was said to be arrested on Monday afternoon at the Wuse II, Abuja office of the EFCC, over allegations that he was siphoning part of money recovered by the commission from suspected looters.
It was learnt that the security details to Magu put up a stiff resistance during the arrest of their principal, as they objected to the DSS move.
This is happening barely two weeks after the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN) reportedly complained to President Muhammadu Buhari about Magu’s conduct and advised that he should be relieved of his appointment.
The AGF was said to have accused Magu of insubordination and discrepancies in the figures of funds recovered by the EFCC.
