DOWNLOAD: New SSS report on acting EFCC chair, Magu

Ibrahim Magu
Acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu

DOWNLOAD REPORT BELOW THIS POST

The forces opposed to the confirmation of Ibrahim Magu as substantive head of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Friday released a new seven-page letter by the State Security Service, SSS, expatiating on the corruption allegations against the anti-corruption czar.

The letter, which was circulated to select Nigerian journalists by a faceless group, Advocacy Justice, was written by the SSS to the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, to further push its relentless campaign against Mr. Magu.

One of our editors was among journalists to which the document was sent.

The letter appeared to have been written in response to a request by Mr. Malami that the SSS should provide documentary evidence of its allegations against the acting EFCC chair.

In its response, the SSS, through one Folashade Bello, sent the minister at least 12 documents.

One of the documents contained minutes of the 2oth plenary meeting of the Police Service Commission in 2010 which reportedly reprimanded Mr. Magu.

The eleven other documents tried to link Mr. Magu to Mohammed Umar, a retired air commodore being investigated by the SSS.

The documents were, however, not released alongside the cover letter discreetly circulated Friday.

The letter appeared to have been circulated to further embarrass Mr. Magu and possibly pressure President Muhammadu Buhari to remove him from his post.

The letter was undated.

The SSS, in controversial reports to the Senate, claimed Mr. Magu is tainted and should not be confirmed to head the nation’s top anti-corruption body.

The Nigerian Senate agreed and has, twice, declined to approve his appointment, a move that has drawn widespread condemnation across the country.

    Mr. Buhari must damn those reports, retain the acting EFCC Chair through the life of his govetnment to shame those faceless maggots against the headship of the anti corruption body by Mr. Magu.

    • Frank Bassey

      There are no “faceless maggots” in this matter; this is empty grammar. The name of the signatory to the DSS letter is on the document. The office address is known. The persons and places mentioned in the document are verifiable. Where does “faceless” come in? Haba!

    • smart G

      For people like you as long as Metuh, Fani Kayode and Fayose are being tried in the media Magu is the best. What a naive and myopic view.

    • Kevin Peter

      Why not advise Buhari to hand over power to Magu come 2019, let’s see the “saints” in both of them.

  • arewethishopeless

    Who would have dared try this during OBJ time? What is worse than such insubordination, betrayal? PMB, stop loosing credibility because of your cousin? Take charge NOW

  • Romberg

    This letter was written in December, but Magu has been nominated twice afterwards? And imagine who is hell-bent to make sure Magu remains in the EFCC? It’s Buhari, Ole. With a report like this, Buhari should have saved Nigeria from this endless by unnecessary Magu debate.

    If Magu is not a collection agent for Buhari, he should be sacked straightaway. If Magu likes himself, he should step aside straightaway. If Buhari doesn’t want to be impeached, he should advise Magu to resign or sack him immediately. EFCC headship is not Magu’s right. There are tons of others who can perform a lot better, and this time, selection must be from the South…

  • Frank Bassey

    Any one insisting on Magu heading EFCC can employ him to be investigating his wife or husband. Enough of this nonsense.

    • Buhari4Ever

      Your benefactor, Akpabio vowed bottom confirm Magi as EFCC chairman for fear of being used for pepper soup

      • Frank Bassey

        What happened to Babachir Lawal, Buratai, Kyari? Have they been used for “Nkwobi” or “Isi-ewu” which are even more concentrated than pepper sou;?

    From the comments here, you can see how easily Nigerians were sold for dummies. The first question any right thinking person should ask, is how this documents got their ways into Umar’s house. And the answer is simple; He (Umar) is a member of presidential investigation committee on arms procurement, and he is privy to all documents relating to arms deals (which NNPC also played a dangerous roles during GEJ govt.). So if Umar had access to those documents as a member of the committee do the DSS expect Magu to Keep classified documents from the committee or what. it is a whole nonsense from DSS. Any ways i believe Magu will come up with his own part of the story. Just a little patience please.
