Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, has been arrested by the Department of State Services.

Magu was arrested on Monday afternoon at the Wuse II, Abuja office of the EFCC on Monday over allegations that he was siphoning part of money recovered by the commission from suspected looters.

According to Punch, the security details to Magu reportedly put up a stiff resistance during the arrest of their principal, as they objected to the DSS move.

This is happening barely two weeks after the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN) reportedly complained to President Muhammadu Buhari about Magu’s conduct and advised that he should be relieved of his appointment.

The AGF was said to have accused Magu of insubordination and discrepancies in the figures of funds recovered by the EFCC.

He was also accused of disposing of assets, especially buildings seized from corrupt politicians and others, without approval, or knowledge of the AGF’s office, which is the supervisory ministry of the EFCC.

The AGF allegedly listed 22 offences allegedly committed by Magu, for which he should be sacked.

Magu has been in an acting capacity since the National Assembly twice refused to confirm his nomination to head the anti-graft agency after the president sent his name to the federal lawmakers on both occasions.

The DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, could not be reached for comment on Magu’s arrest. --
