Magu Still On Our Payroll — Minister

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The minister of police affairs, Muhammad Dingyadi, has stated that former acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu is still on the payroll of the federal government.

Dingyadi disclosed this in an interview on Channels Television.

It could be recalled that Magu was the acting chairman of the EFCC between 2015 and 2020 but was detained and suspended on July 7, 2020 as the head of the anti-graft agency.

Speaking on this development, Dingyadi stated that since the report of the suspension of the former EFCC boss was submitted to the president, no further communication has been sent to the ministry and the police force.

According to the minister, despite the suspension of Magu as acting EFCC chairman, he is still a police officer under the payroll of the federal government.

“The matter, like you said, is investigated. The man is still in the service; he is still in the force headquarters, and I don’t want to expatiate at this material time as to what is happening to the report of the committee,” he said.

“What I know is that the matter has been submitted to Mr President and as far as I know, no communication has yet been forwarded to the ministry or police force on this matter.

“So we are waiting for the final outcome to be made public.

“Of course, he is still a police officer even though he is under suspension. So what you know is that he used to be the chairman of the EFCC, but he is no longer one.

“But that does not mean he is not within the payroll of the FG. He is still a civil servant, he is still a police officer so until the final decision is taken on the matter. I don’t think I should say more than what I have said on this matter.”
