Buhari gave the order for EFCC directors suspension on Friday last week
President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the suspension of 12 directors of Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
To be suspended as well include EFCC’s Secretary, Olanipekun Olukoyede.
The order, Punch reports, was handed down on Friday following a request by the presidential panel investigating the allegations of graft and misconduct against the former EFCC acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu.
The EFCC directors, according to the report, were asked by the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), to proceed on suspension on Tuesday in compliance with the presidential order.
“The panel actually requested the suspension of all the EFCC directors. Following the request, the President asked the AGF to direct the directors and other senior officials to proceed on suspension immediately. The officials were informed on Tuesday,” the report said, citing an unidentified source.
