EFCC Boss, Magu Commences Total War With Core EFCC Staff
Regular members of staff at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC are complaining that they are being bullied by the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.
Magu, who returned a few seconded police men to their mother organisation has become panicky following series of revelations on his activities at the commission.
According to a source, Magu was “panicking because his confirmation had been deferred and is beginning to suspect any and every one in the commission for his problem.”
In June of this year, the DSS arrested one Air Commodore Umar Muhammed. Mr. Muhammed is still in detention with the state security service accused of carrying out a blackmailing cartel on behalf of senior staff at EFCC and Office of the National Security Adviser.
During a raid at the Maitama, Abuja home of the Air Chief Muhammed, DSS operatives discovered sensitive EFCC documents, plus other unauthorised documents from the office of the President and Arms Deal Committee.
A source close to the investigation believes Mr Muhammed who retired as an air commodore in the Nigerian Air Force in January 2014 has informed the duo of NSA Babagana Monguno and his Mr Magu whom he is alleged to be fronting for, that all was about to be revealed by the DSS Operatives working on his case.
Air Cdre, Mr Muhammed thinks it is the DSS attached to him that exposed all his dealings.
The source expressed that this important information from the air officer, Mr. Muhammed has prompted the acting chairman of the anti-corruption agency to embark on a personal vendetta against core staff of the commission attached to his office.
