BREAKING: Buhari Orders Suspension EFCC Directors

President Muhammadu Buhari (Retd.), has ordered the suspension of 12 directors of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Also affected was the Commission Secretary, Olanipekun Olukoyede.

The order, our correspondent gathered, was handed down on Friday following a request by the Presidential Panel investigating the allegations of graft and misconduct against the former  EFCC acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu.

Daily Watch Press learnt that the directors were directed by the Attorney General of the Federation,  Abubakar Malami (SAN) to proceed on suspension on Tuesday,  in compliance with the presidential directives or order.

A source said, “The panel actually requested the suspension of all the directors of the EFCC to go to enable the panel members to carry out a thorough investigation into the activities of the commission.

“Following the request, the President asked the AGF to direct the directors and other senior officials to proceed on suspension immediately.  The officials were informed on Tuesday.”
