Court Backs Magu As EFCC Chair


Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court, Abuja on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 dismissed the suits challenging the stay of Ibrahim Mustapha Magu as Acting Chairman of the EFCC. The suits were contesting the legality of Magu’s position as EFCC acting Chairman after the refusal of the 8th Senate under the leadership of Bukola Saraki to confirm him as substantive chair of the premier anti-graft agency. But in her judgment today, Justice Ojukwu dismissed the suits. According to her, “this case cannot be entertained as it has failed and accordingly dismissed.”
