Ex-EFCC Chair Magu Still On FG Payroll As Police Officer- Maigari Dingyadi

The Minister of Police Affairs, Maigari Dingyadi, has intimated that the former acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, CP Ibrahim Magu, continues to be on the Federal Government’s payroll as a police officer in spite his suspension.

Recall that Magu was accused by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) for deliberately paying a blind eye to his asset declaration for the government as it is required for all government officials to declare their assets.

The Minister of Police Affairs, Maigari Dingyadi appeared on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ where he explained that once the final outcome of his probe is not yet finalized, he continues to be a police officer, and hence he is on the government’s payroll.

Maigari Dingyad said: “The matter is investigated and the man is still in the service, he is still in the Force Headquarters, I don’t want to expatiate at this material time as to what is happening to the report of the committee. What I know is that the report has been submitted to Mr President and as far as I know, no communication has yet to be submitted to the ministry or the police force on this matter.

“So, we are waiting for the final outcome and the public will be informed as and when the need arises.”

“Of course, he is still a police officer even though he is under suspension. He used to be the chairman of the EFCC but he is no longer one.

“But that does not mean he is not on the payroll of the Federal Government; he is still a civil servant, he is still a police officer until a final decision is taken on the matter, I don’t think I should say anything more than I have said on this matter now,”
