The Nigerian Guardian had reported that President Muhammadu Buhari may have finally removed the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, from office, .
The Guardian however quoting a source said his redeployment back to Nigerian Police Force, NPF, was to pave way for a fresh person to be presented by Buhari as the nominee to head the Commission before the Senate.
Femi Adesina, Special Adviser On Media & Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari oh his twitter handle @FemAdesina said there was ‘No truth in story making the rounds that Magu has been removed as EFCC chairman.AGF is even yet to submit his probe report to the President.”
