EFCC Gets New Acting Chairman, Mohammad Umar


Mohammed Umar, the Head of Operations at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has resumed as the acting chairman of the agency following the suspension of Ibrahim Magu.

Umar, who is a Deputy Commissioner of Police, is the second most senior operative at the Commission.

Information learnt that there had been moves to install the Secretary, Ola Olukoyede, as the chairman pending the suspension of Ibrahim Magu.

However, Olukoyede was not favoured as he is a civilian.

Recall that Magu was on Monday arrested by the Department of State Services personnel and was taken to the Presidential Villa in the Aso rock area of the Federal Capital Territory where he faced a panel led by a former Court of Appeal judge, Ayo Salami. 

Magu was arrested after it was alleged that he had four houses and was moving money outside the country through third parties.
