EFCC speaks on removal of Magu as acting chairman

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reacted to speculation that Ibrahim Magu would be removed as the acting chairman of the anti-graft agency.

In a tweet sent out from its official handle on Tuesday morning, the commission insisted “there is no change of guards”.

The update read: “#Alert: For the avoidance of any doubt, there is no “change of guards” at the EFCC. Ibrahim Magu remains the acting EFCC Chairman.

“Purveyors of #fakenews concerning the EFCC are hereby warned to desist from such mischief as the anti-graft agency remains committed to its mission.”

Yesterday, the Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption, PACAC, Prof. Itse Sagay, also dismissed speculations that Magu has been ​sacked.

His ‘removal​’ has been a subject of debate in the last few days, following the declaration by the Nigerian Senate that it he is not regarded as EFCC chairman.



  1. Magu remains a stumbling block to those rogues in the Senate and other thieves who are a clog to the Nation’s wheel of progress

  2. You know because election is approaching and with the threat that Magu poses to their ambition. Luckily it is the Executive that decides the fate of Magu because if the rouges refuse to confirm him, he will continue to act.

  3. Magu has been a big fish bone in the throat of more than 85% of those in the National Assembly. He is man they’re trying to do everything possible to remove from office because they know that he has records of their secret deals and can bounce on them when they least expected. Nemesis will catch on everyone of you that have plugged Nigeria into this mess.
