President Muhammadu Buhari has suspended the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.
Magu was invited on Monday by a combined team of Department of State Services personnel and policemen at the Wuse II office of the EFCC to face an inter-agency committee investigating corruption allegations against him.
He faced a seven-man presidency panel headed by former President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami, investigating the allegations.
WESTERN POST had reported that Magu appeared before the committee for four hours on Monday. He was, however, not released up until midnight.
He was later detained at the FCID in Area 10, Abuja, on Monday night on the orders of the committee that also questioned him on Tuesday morning.
A source in the Presidency has, however, confirmed that Magu has now been suspended pending when a decision will be taken on him.
