The Senate had based its decision to reject Mr Magu’s nomination as substantive chair of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on the report it received from the DSS.
An online media, whose editor in chief has links with Mr Magu, did an hatchet job on the DSS report with the aim of gathering public sympathy for Mr Magu, but DENISAURUS has provided a correct version of event.
Different media houses are reporting that Mr Magu was not rejected. The official spokesman for the Senate has refuted such report.
Senator Aliiyu Sabi Abdullahi (Niger state) said: “Different media platforms are reporting we did not reject EFCC Magu, Senate’s official position remains, he was rejected.”
