The screening of the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC will no longer take place as scheduled.
DENISAURUS has learnt that contrary to the announcement made by the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, the hearing was not listed in today’s program of the Senate.
According to those in the know, Mr Magu’s screening was cancelled because the report from the Department of State Security, DSS could no longer be ignored by senior lawmakers.
In an interview with a leading news channel, Mr Magu became visibly angry when asked about his screening and his relationship with the Attorney-General of Federation and Minister of Federation, Abubakar Malami, SAN.
This blog has been priviledged to receive various explosive allegation of corruption made against Mr Magu by EFCC staffers. Concerns were also raised after receiving information from a DSS report against Mr Magu.
Mr Magu had tried to sweeten Mr Ekweramadu with a anti-corruption ambassador award. But, the EFCC acting boss withdrew the award and blamed the National Assembly Liason Officer, Suleiman Bakari for the mix up.
Staff members complained that their boss was “a bully” who was “frustrating their efforts.”
Their complaint was detailed in a report written by Miss Lucas and published by Abubakar Sidiqu Usman on August 2nd. Unfortunately, this led to the arrest of the popular blogger on August 8th.
In a tweet, The editor of DENISAURUS News, Adenike Lucas, called for the report to be released and started a hashtag #DontConfirmMagu as early as August when the report was being compiled.
Miss Lucas said “The DSS report against Mr Magu was too overwhelming to ignore. The decision taken by Senators on Monday, to back our call for the release of the report is highly welcomed.”
