Emerging reports say that the troubled boss of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has been suspended.
BBC Hausa Service quoted an unnamed presidency source Tuesday as providing information on the development.
The final events leading to the suspension of Magu as acting chairman of the EFCC started on Monday.
A presidential panel headed by Justice Ayo Salami, with the mandate to probe Magu’s alleged acts of corruption, summoned him at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Magu honoured the invitation and was grilled for hours and later taken into police custody.
On Tuesday, members of the Justice Salami-led panel resumed sitting on Magu’s matter.
It was later reported that Magu had been suspended.
The news of Magu’s suspension, however, is yet to be confirmed by the Presidency.
