Following the indefinite suspension of the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, President Bola Tinubu has directed that the Director of Operations at the Commission, Abdulkarim Chukkol immediately takes charge of the anti-graft agency.

A statement issued from the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation says weighty allegations of abuse of office had been levelled against Bawa, who has been in office since February 24, 2021.

Chukkol is one of the young officers elevated following the appointment of Bawa over a year and half ago.

Chukkol earned a degree from the University of Maiduguri in 2000 and has attended various training programs such as FBI National Academy, Quantico.

Bawa has been under public scrutiny for alleged corruption in the last few months.

The former Zamfara State governor, Bello Matawalle, had last month alleged that the EFCC chief demanded a $2 million bribe from him.

This followed the commission’s announcement on the planned investigation of the former governor and other individuals that served in the last political dispensation for alleged corruption.
