The Department of State Service (DSS) has arrested the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Ibrahim Magu.
The anti-corruption czars who was arrested today Monday, is currently being quizzed at the Aso Drive headquarters of the secret police over alleged fraudulent activities.
EFCC’s Spokesperson Dele Oyewale has since claimed that Magu was not arrested but only invited for questioning.
Magu’s arrest followed allegations that he was secretly diverting some of the funds recovered from suspected looters by the commission.
The security details of Magu were said to have put up a stiff resistance during the arrest of their principal.
His arrest is coming weeks after the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) Abubakar Malami, wrote a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari demanding Magu’s removal.
Malami had accused Magu of corruption ranging from diversion of recovered loots to insubordination and misconduct.
