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.
