Mohammed Umar has reportedly taken over as the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, after the former acting chairman Ibrahim Magu was suspended and also been investigated over fraud allegations.

Umar until this appointment, was the Head of Operations at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the second most senior operative at the Commission.

An investigation has been launched into Magu’s activities as the chairman of the antigraft agency after the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, wrote a letter to the President, asking for Magu’s removal and accusing him of corruption including diversion of recovered funds.

He was suspended on Tuesday, July 7 to allow him attend the Justice Ayo Salami panel investigating the allegations of corruption leveled against him.
