Magu joins Buhari for jummat prayer in villa mosque
Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, yesterday joined President Muhammadu Buhari and other faithful for the Jummat prayer at the mosque located in the Presidential Villa, Abuja. The anti graft boss is facing investigations over allegations of corrupt practices following a report from the Department of State Services (DSS).
Specifically, the Senate chamber had unearthed a report of alleged sundry corruption leveled against Magu, a development, which stalled his confirmation and appointment by president Buhari as the substantive chairman of the financial crimes agency.
Following this development, the President on December 18, last year instructed the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) Mr. Abubakar Malami to initiate a probe of the matter.
Magu was seen yesterday exchanging pleasantries with other visitors as he made to leave the Presidential Villa immediately after the Jummat prayer.He did not speak with newsmen.
