The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has been advised to resign immediately after the end of the investigation into corruption allegations leveled against him.
Former Assistant Director of the Department of State Services (DSS), Dennis Amachree, gave the advice to Magu on Tuesday during an interview on Channels Television.
Speaking further, the former DSS director said it would be difficult for the acting EFCC chief not to be indicted based on a large number of allegations against him.
Amachree noted that Magu should tender his resignation letter to President Muhammadu Buhari if found to be clean after the investigation.
He said the fact that the panel was sitting at the Presidential Villa showed that the President is aware of the investigation.
Amachree said, “If I was Magu and I go before this panel and they give me a clean bill that all the allegations against me are faulty, once I come out, what I would do is to resign.”
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Magu was picked up by security operatives on Monday afternoon and was immediately taken to the Aso Rock to face a Presidential panel. The EFCC boss was grilled by the panel on Monday over 24 allegations of fraud and misconduct.
It was gathered that Magu was grilled over a memo by the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, to President Muhammadu Buhari, accusing the EFCC chairman of several offences.
