Nigerians on the platform of Global Centre for Conscious Living Against Corruption have demanded the immediate removal of Ibrahim Magu as acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The group led by its president Gabriel Nwamba stormed the national headquarters of the EFCC early hours of Thursday, June 1, 2017.

“Magu must go,” “All we are saying, Magu must go,” they chanted in loud tone.

Addressing journalists, Nwamba who commended the anti-corruption crusade of the Federal Government however condemned Magu’s style of leadership.

“The mode of operation of the EFCC under Magu has shown several cases of gross human right violation,” he said.

“The fact that the EFCC speaks too soon to the extent of suspecting people on the pages of newspapers is against the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Magu is now operating under another constitution.

“In the interest of peace and respect for the tenets of modern democracy hinged on the rule of law, civil society organisations and indeed many Nigerians who support President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption crusade hereby, as a matter of urgency, request the authorities concerned to immediately remove Ibrahim Magu as acting chairman of the EFCC and replace him with more competent Nigerian citizen for the realization of the present administration’s goal in fighting corruption," he added.

The group also prayed for the speedy recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari who they believed would ‘take Nigeria to the promise land.’
