Recall Magu was suspended as chairman of EFCC on July 7, 2020. He was appointed as EFCC acting chairman of EFCC on November 9, 2015 after Ibrahim Lamorde, who earlier served twice was sacked by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Magu was also chairman, Conference of Anti-Corruption Agencies in Commonwealth Africa. His tenure at the EFCC was reputed as being the first to prosecute Judges and military officers.

Magu’s arrest on July 6, 2020 on charges of financial crimes and remand in prison puts an end to many controversies over the legitimacy of his appointment after his confirmation was rejected twice by the National Assembly.
