Magu not sacked as EFCC chairman - Presidency

Contrary to reports, Ibrahim Magu, has not been relieved of his appointment as Chairman of the EFCC, the presidency has said.

Reports came from the Guardian newspaper saying an unnamed source as saying Mr. Magu had been asked to vacate his seat by the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.
Although Mr. Malami could not be reached on phone, officials at the presidency denied the report.
“It is not true,” presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, said.
Mr. Adesina confirmed that Mr. Buhari had not authorised Mr. Magu’s removal.
Close aides of Mr. Magu also said no such directive was received from the Attorney General’s office.
Messrs. Magu and Malami were said to have met on Friday to finetune ‎case files on an urgent matter asked to be investigated by Mr. Buhari.
However, multiple sources at the presidency and the AGF’s office confirmed that Mr. Malami ‎on Friday submitted a report to President Buhari.
The report was in response to the president’s directive that Mr. Malami investigate allegations of corruption levelled on Mr. Magu by the State Security Service, SSS.
