The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reiterated that media reports that President Muhammadu Buhari sacked his Acting anti-graft Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, is false.

The report of Magu's purported sack was first reported by The Guardian on Saturday, December 31.

Presidential spokesmen, Garba Shehu and Femi Adesina have in separate statements on twitter denied the report, describing is as "speculative" and "preemptive."

The EFCC via Twitter maintained that Magu remains the head of the Commission.


"Guardian Newspaper Lied. Magu Not Sacked!," the anti-graft agency wrote.
