Multiple reports from media sources is indicating that President Muhammadu Buhari has removed the embattled acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, from office.
The Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, in a letter sent to Magu on Friday, directed him to hand over to the Director of Operations in the Commission.
Mr Magu will be redeployed back to the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) to pave way for a new appointee into the seat of the anti-graft agency according to the report.
The situation, reports say, was made to look like a routine exercise where some senior Police Officers would redeployed back to the Force and serve in the same capacity they left or an improved one.
Hope For Nigeria has been unable to confirm the report from the Presidency and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
