By Adenike Lucas

The rejected Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has failed to heed properly to the directive given by the President over allegation of corruption made against him, this newspaper can reveal.

Recalcitrant Magu

On Thursday, 15 December, 2016, the Senate rejected Mr Magu’s nomination as substantive chairman of the anti-graft commission based on an indicting report it received from the Director General of the Department of State Security, DSS, Lawal Musa Daura.

Several publication reported that the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami, SAN, with the direction of President Muhammadu Buhari had ordered Mr Magu to respond- within 48 hours, to those allegations of corruption levelled against him.

However, DENISAURUS News understands that Mr Magu did not do as directed.

The editor in chief of this newspaper, Adenike Lucas reported on Friday, 23 December that Mr Magu had refused to provide his response to the query at the stipulated time given by the AGF.

Report shows that Mr Magu relegated the AGF’s order only to provide a reply days after its expiration.

Mr Magu’s decision to send his response to the query, 24 hours later than the time frame given by Mr Malami, SAN “proves his unwillingness to submit to his substantive minister and a total disrespect to President Buhari,” a senior staff said.

The staff added: “Mr Magu has disobeyed the President by refusing to obey the delegated authority which the President vested on the AGF to conduct this probe.”

A media ally of Mr Magu had insinuated that the probe would be unfair because Mr Malami, SAN did not like Mr Magu.

In a tweet, Sahara Reporters who this blog has constantly accused of carrying out media work for Mr Magu wrote: “FLASH: AGF Abubakar Malami a Sworn Enemy of @officialEFCC ag. Chair Magu writes him to explain himself in 48 hours.”
