Salami Panel Recommends Magu’s Sack, Wants Buhari to Think Outside The Box For Next EFCC Boss

THE panel investigating former Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission – EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has recommended his sack.

The Justice Ayo Salami probe panel submitted its report to President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday.

In a rundown of the trial, the panel said that it received 46 petitions and memoranda from individuals and organisations, complaining against Magu, EFCC or both, adding that 113 witnesses appeared and testified before the Commission.

Justice Salami said that the presidential judicial panel embarked on a nationwide physical verification of recovered forfeited assets, comprising real estates, automobiles, vessels and non-cash assets.

He commended the President for the initiative to dispose of all forfeited assets saying, ”because of the poor condition of the assets we saw during our physical verification nationwide.”

The panel suggested that president Buhari appoints a new person to boss the commission for at least, two years. The panel urged the president to consider looking outside the police force in his search for potential candidate for the EFCC job.
