Magu, EFCC Chairman Arrested By DSS

Ibrahim Magu, the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has been arrested by operatives of the Directorate of the State Services, DSS early Monday morning. Though the initial reports of the arrest indicated that he was arrested based on the allegations that dated back to 2010 and 2016, it is said that there are fresh allegations. They were the same allegations that the last Senate based its refusal to deny him confirmation as EFCC boss. Part of the allegations are his alleged romance with one of the people he was supposed to be investigating. He is also said to have flown to Saudi Arabia in 2016 for lesser haj that cost the government about N2.9 million,while he is said to have gone against the presidential directive for public officers to not fly first class. But the government stood its ground, refusing to withdraw his name for the job. So, for about seven years he has occupied the position on acting basis. TELL, however,  learnt that the authorities may have discovered new allegations against the man. What those allegations are remain mere conjectures. Details later…..
