DSS Arrests EFCC Chairman Ibrahim Magu

“In December 2010, the Police Service Commission (PSC) found Magu guilty of action prejudicial to state security –

withholding of EFCC files, sabotage, unauthorised removal of EFCC files and acts unbecoming of a police officer,

and awarded him severe reprimand as punishment.

“Magu is currently occupying a residence rented for N40m at N20m per annum.

This accommodation was not paid [for] from the commission’s finances,

but by one Umar Mohammed, air commodore retired,

“For the furnishing of the residence, Magu enlisted the Federal Capital Development Authority to award a contract to Africa Energy,

a company owned by the same Mohammed, to furnish the residence at the cost of N43m.

“Investigations show that the acting EFCC chairman regularly embarked on official

and private trips through a private jet owned by Mohammed.

“In one of such trips, Magu flew to Maiduguri alongside Mohammed with a bank MD,

who was being investigated by the EFCC over complicity in funds allegedly stolen,

by the immediate past petroleum minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

“Furthermore, the EFCC boss has so far maintained a high-profile lifestyle.

This is exemplified by his preference for first-class air travels.

On 24 June, 2016, he flew Emirate airlines first-class to Saudi Arabia to perform lesser hajj at the cost of N2.9m.

This is in spite of Mr President’s directive to all public servants to fly economy class.

“Magu has fostered a beneficial relationship with Mohammed who by

his confession approaches clients for possible exploitation, favors and associated returns”.
