Abubakar Malami wrote a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari some weeks ago asking for the sack of Magu, in this he accused Magu of corruption, insubordination among other crimes.

The Nation reports that Magu was questioned for hours by a team led by Justice Isa Ayo Salami before he was moved to the Presidential Villa where he was interrogated by the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) at about 10.15pm shortly after the investigative panel ended its sitting. His escort mobile policemen and security detail were stood down before he was taken into custody. 

 “In the light of the ongoing investigation, it became expedient to detain Magu at the FCID. We do not want him to return to the office while he is being questioned, because he is likely to have another session with the Justice Salami panel.” a source told The Nation

Is there any possibility of Mr. Magu being suspended from the office? 

“By not allowing him to go back to his office was an indication that he might be suspended. It is obvious that the Presidency has concluded plans to look for a new candidate for the office,” the source added

Mr Magu also refused to be kept in a office as he insisted on sleeping in a cell and treated like every other suspect. 
“I won’t go and sleep in any office, I prefer to be in a cell. Kindly put me in a cell. That is what Allah wants for me. I can’t question God.”
Mr Magu seem to be in a lot of troubles if allegations leveled against him are true, here are some of the allegations;
According to Lindaikejisblog, 
  • Alleged discrepancies in the reconciliation records of the EFCC and the Federal Ministry of Finance on recovered funds
  • Declaration of N539billion as recovered funds instead of N504b earlier claimed
  • Insubordination to the office of the AGF by not seeking his approval on some decisions
  • Not providing enough evidence for the extradition of ex-Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke
  • Alleged late action on the investigation of Process and Industrial Development (P&ID) leading to legal dispute
  • Not respecting court order to unfreeze a N7billion judgment in favour of a former Executive Director of First Bank
  • Alleged delay in acting on two vessels seized by Nigerian Navy leading to the loss of crude
  • Alleged favouring of some investigators called Magu’s Boys
  • Reporting some judges to their presiding officers without deferring to the AGF
  • Alleged sales of seized assets to cronies, associates and friends
  • Alleged issuance of investigative activities to some media prejudicial to some cases. 
Could this be the end of Mr. Magu?
