EFCC: Magu out as Salami panel okays interim chair for two years

THE suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Finance Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, is unlikely to return to the post, following a recommendation by the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into the activities of the commission.

The panel has told government to appoint a transitional chairman for the agency for two years.

The commission, headed by a former President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Isa Ayo Salami, also wants the next EFCC chairman to be appointed from other law enforcement agencies outside the Nigeria Police Force.

Besides, it is of the view that the Federal Government should disengage all the 970 policemen from the EFCC within two years.
