Obscure to Ibrahim Magu, President Muhammadu Buhari had coordinated the Department of State Services (DSS) to examine him as far back as 2018, TheCable can report.
The DSS, which has a monetary wrongdoings unit, assumed the focal job in uncovering the charges for which the suspended acting director of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is presently confronting a presidential test.
The president was said to have been stunned when the DSS gave a thorough dossier on Magu which was “dooming”.
“In the event that Magu was a man who can peruse the signs, he ought to have wondered why the president didn’t re-present his name to the Senate for affirmation as EFCC executive since the new national gathering was initiated,” a senior presidential source told TheCable.
The current Senate has never turned down any chosen one of the president, not at all like the past one which would not affirm Magu.
In any case, it would show up Magu, in the end, got wind of the moves against him as he attempted to charm himself with the president.
“He went to the mosque at the presidential estate to state Jumaat supplications alongside the president on June 5, yet the president was not entirely alright with it,” the source said.
“President Buhari likes to ask with his family and individual helpers, so he was upset when Magu wangled his way to the mosque after the halfway lifting of lockdown.
“A guidance was then given that he ought not to be permitted to go to the mosque.”
The trigger for the DSS examination, as indicated by the source, was the report of the presidential board of trustees on the review of recouped resources.
The three-part panel was introduced on November 22, 2017, by Buhari to review all benefits recouped by offices of the government from May 29, 2015, when his legislature was initiated.
The panel was going by Olufemi Lijadu, with Mohammad Nami and Gloria Bibigha as individuals.
Lijadu is presently the director of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) while Nami was named executive of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).
The panel presented its report a half year delayed in view of the degree of the work, and the part of EFCC “overwhelmed the president”.
The report said the EFCC announced a complete naira likeness N46,038,882,509.87, while what could be compared to the outside money lodgements was N37,533,764,195.66, “speaking to a deficiency of N8,505,118,314.21″.
“These irregularities provide a reason to feel ambiguous about genuine the precision of figures put together by the EFCC. It is the advisory group’s view that the EFCC can’t be said to have completely represented money recuperations made by it,” the report noted.
“While EFCC announced absolute Naira recuperations of N504,154,184,744.04, the real bank lodgements were N543,511,792,863.47. These disparities imply that EFCC’s genuine lodgement surpassed its announced recuperations by N39,357,608,119.43.”
Buhari promptly requested that the DSS examine Magu.
While DSS recognized a few properties purportedly claimed by Magu in Dubai, the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) assumed a significant job in giving knowledge on his supposed money related dealings.
NFIU, the focal national office that handles exposures and knowledge in the budgetary segment, used to be under the EFCC however was extracted and made a free body in July 2018 in spite of Magu’s resistance.
