President Muhammadu Buhari has suspended over ten the top officials of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) over alleged criminal and corrupt infractions.
A source from the presidency told PM News on Tuesday night that the Commission’s executive Secretary Olanipekun Olukoyede was among the senior officials suspended by President Buhari.
“They were suspended for various alleged criminal and corrupt infractions,” the source said.
They were suspended to allow for unfettered investigation of the various corruption allegations rocking the anti-graft commission.
The source added that “All the top officials in the agency have been suspended, their offices locked, to prevent any tampering with files at the commission.”
Recall that the former acting chairman of the agency was suspended over the same crime and however was replaced with the director of operations, Mohammed Umar Abba.
The newspaper’s source said that the new acting Chairman survived the suspension because he was found not to be a part of the suspected underhand dealings in the agency.
