Information reaching 247ureports.com indicates that the recently embarrassed acting boss of the anti-graft agency of Nigeria, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC], Ibrahim Magu may not be walking away from the embarrassment quietly.
The acting chairman of the EFCC was yesterday rejected by the Senate when he was presented for confirmation. Yesterday’s rejection came as the second rejection of the acting EFCC boss. The rejection was based on a letter from the Department of Security Services [DSS] indicating that the EFCC acting boss had failed the integrity test.
The shamed EFCC acting boss following his presentation at the Senate was reported by a source to have arrived his office devastated and annoyed at the leadership at the DSS and at the chief of staff to the president, Abba Kyari. According to the source, the acting EFCC Boss vowed to revenge at the actions of the DSS boss “at all cost“. The source went on to add that Magu was totally livid and was ready to “go at any length” to revenge and/or retaliate at the DSS boss and chief of staff.
Magu believes that his personal difference with the two gentlemen resulted in the submission by the DSS.
Often recent weeks, the EFCC boss and the EFCC had upped their game in going after financial crimes and prosecuting them successfully. The recent imprisonment of the former governor of Adamawa State for financial crimes was hailed as a success for the anti-graft agency. Other burst made by the men of the commission were hailed as big successes. The vice president, Osinbajo had publicly praised the efforts of the commission as having improved.
Stay tuned. The presidency is expected to react today.
