More than two months after the Justice Ayo Salami (retd.)-led Judicial Commission of Inquiry on the investigation of the suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, submitted its report, President Muhammadu Buhari, has yet to take a decision on it.
The panel, which was set up in July 2020 to investigate various allegations of wrongdoing against Magu, submitted its report to the President on November 20, 2020.
Salami had, while submitting the report, said the panel received 46 petitions and memoranda from individuals and organisations with complaints against the suspended acting chairman, EFCC or both.
He added that Magu and 113 witnesses appeared and testified before the commission.
Among other recommendations, the panel said in appointing a new chairman for the commission, consideration should be given to candidates from other security agencies and core staff of the EFCC as provided in the EFCC Establishment Act of 2004.
Magu was suspended in July 2020 following allegations levelled against him by a panel set up by the attorney general of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.
He was accused of buying a home in Dubai worth over N570m and being unable to account for the interest accrued to over N500bn recovered by the EFCC, but he denied the allegations.
