Following the reported suspension of Ibrahim Magu, the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), a new official has reportedly been selected to head the affairs of the anti-corruption agency.
A senior EFCC source, who does not want to be named, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday, July 7, that Mohammed Umar, the director of operations at the commission has been picked to oversee the affairs of the agency in place of Magu.
According to the official, Umar was selected by EFCC’s hierarchy after the commission learnt that Magu has been suspended.
The EFCC source said the reported suspension of the acting chairman has not been officially communicated to the anti-graft commission.
However, when contacted about Magu’s reported replacement, the spokesperson of the EFCC, Dele Oyewale, declined to comment.
