…as odds favour FCT police boss as agency’s substantive head
Head of Operations at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mohammed Umar, on Wednesday, resumed as the acting chairman of the anti-graft agency.
Umar, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, was the next person to Magu and the second most senior operative at EFCC.
Alleged attempts by some interested forces to replace Magu with the EFCC Secretary, Ola Olukoyede, as the chairman, First News learnt, did not succeed.
Olukoyede was said to have been dropped by the Presidency because of his lack of any security or military training and background.
However, there were feelers on Wednesday afternoon that the FCT Commissioner of Police, Bala Ciroma, may eventually replace Magu as EFCC substantive chairman.
