The Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami has reportedly suspended 12 directors of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

According to Punch, the notice of the suspension was contained in a letter by AGF Malami to the EFCC acting chairman, Mohammed Umar, directing the affected directors to proceed on suspension immediately.

The action was said to be in connection with the ongoing investigation of the suspended EFCC boss, Mr. Ibrahim Magu.

KanyiDaily had reported that Magu is detention since his arrest on Monday, July 6, 2020, where he is being probed by Justice Ayo Salami-led presidential panel over allegations of corruption, insurbodination and re-looting of recovered funds.

A source disclosed that the presidential panel requested the suspension of the 12 EFCC directors to enable it carry out a thorough investigation into the activities of the commission, without undue interference.

However, TheCable understands that some of the directors affected by the action have been involved in investigating Malami.

KanyiDaily recalled three days ago, Magu had asked the Presidential Panel to investigate the alleged sale of recovered assets by AGF Malami.

It was alleged that Malami reportedly granted two separate approvals to an auctioneer to conduct an open bid for sale of crude oil and diesel as well as five vessels forfeited by illegal bunkering operators to the government.
