Buhari Suspends Nigeria's Anti-Graft Boss Magu

After Premium Times reported that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission's (EFCC) acting chairperson Ibrahim Magu was arrested, the Department of State Service denied the move, according to This Day, saying Magu was "invited" to appear before the presidential panel investigating him. Magu, who is now suspended from his position, has been asked by the country's attorney-general to account for "gaps or discrepancies of figures concerning recovered assets".
