On Thursday, 15, December, 2016, the Senate rejected the nomination of Mr Magu has the fourth substantive chairman of the anti-graft agency following an indicting report it received from the Department of State Security, DSS.
The DSS report confirms several accusation made against Mr Magu by EFCC staffers. Staff had since the beginning of this year accused their boss of being an angry corrupt bully who was unfit to head such a prestigious organisation like the EFCC.
On August, 8, 2016, Mr Magu ordered the arrest of a popular blogger who had published an an expose by Miss Lucas, which was revealed how he had abused his authority and covered up issue of corruption where it concerns those close to him.
Mr Magu had done so much “unwholesome acts” so be made the head of the organization. EFCC sources who had constantly exposed Mr Magu’s corrupt ways believe he was still scheming and plotting in order to get the top job.
It is not the first time Mr Magu has thought to bash the President over his failure to interfere with NASS over his confirmation.
