The Presidential Investigation Committee, headed by Justice Isa Ayo Salami (red) has suspended 12 Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) officials.

This is coming days after 12 directors of the agency were suspended by the Presidency in relation to the ongoing probe of suspended Acting Chairman of the commission, Ibrahim Magu.

According to reports, some of the suspended directors had been a part of the team investigating Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN).


EFCC Secretary, Olanipekun Olukoyede was suspended alongside Kabir Latona, Muhammed Abba, Ibrahim Buhari, Rotimi Oyedepo.

A source close to TheNation reports that: “After being in limbo for one week, we got our suspension letters on Monday.

“We were informed that the suspension is indefinite. We have taken it in good faith. But most of us have not received queries in our career.

“We have not even appeared before any disciplinary committee. We appeal to President Mummadu Buhari to intervene by reversing the suspension.”

“It wasn’t a friendly session but we were able to make some clarifications on our performance in office.

“A Coordinator told the committee that service and loyalty to Nigeria guided their conduct in office rather than sentiments.”
