The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami has ordered the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu to respond to the allegations against him by the DSS.
According to TheCable, Malami in a letter dated December 19, 2016 gave Magu 48 hours to respond to the allegations.
The DSS had alleged that Magu flew first class to Saudi Arabia for his hajj, contrary to government directive that none of its officials should travel first class.
The secret police also said Magu’s house was paid for by a “corrupt businessman” while also stating that he has in his possession confidential EFCC documents when he was a director in 2007.
It was learnt that in the letter, Malami said his response will allow President Muhammadu Buhari decide the next action to take.
The security report on the EFCC boss had led to the rejection of his nomination as the EFCC chairman by the Senate.
