Posted on July 8, 2020 || By: Global News

Ibrahim Magu, suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has been sent back to area 10 force criminal investigation department (FCID) of the police in Abuja where he spent the night on Monday.

Gathered that he was moved to detention at the end of questioning by the panel on Tuesday at about 7pm.

Some of the aides of the anti-graft czar had earlier moved his personal belongings out of his official residence in the Maitama area of the nation’s capital while detachment of DSS and policemen who arrested him on Monday searched Magu’s house located on Abduljalil Street, Karu Site, on the outskirts of Abuja,  for several hours and made away with vital documents.

Meanwhile, it was learnt that Magu may be brought before the Force Disciplinary Committee made up of deputy inspectors-general of police for trial and possible dismissal.

A top security agent said since Magu is a Commissioner of Police, he cannot be charge.

He said, “After the panel has finished sitting and once Magu is found wanting on any of the 24 allegations, he would be made to face the Force Disciplinary Committee which comprises the DIGs. The committee would make a recommendation to the IG who would in turn forward the report to the Police Service Commission. The PSC would then do the needful.

“Magu already has an existing disciplinary case in his police file. So, as a second-time offender, dismissal would be very easy.”
