    Magu questions DSS integrity during screening at Senate




    The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has questioned the integrity of the Department of State Security (DSS).

    During his screening at the Senate on Wednesday, Magu lamented that the DSS wrote two seperate on him.

    The DSS had declared that Magu is “unfit” to head the EFCC.

    In his reaction, Magu said: “What does it mean if same institution can submit two different reports on one person on a single day”.

    Senator Dino Melaye had earlier confronted Magu with the report
    by the DSS.

    Melaye read Paragraph 14 of the DSS’ letter on Magu which says “In the light of the foregoing, MAGU has failed the integrity test.

    “Every nominee before the Senate we do request for screening by DSS, it did not start with you and it won’t end with you,” Melaye noted.

    Senators had on December 15, 2016 after a closed-door meeting decided to reject Magu’s nomination after receiving a report by the DSS, which indicted the acting EFCC chairman.

    But on January 24, Buhari re-nominated Magu, but the Senate has been sitting on Magu’s nomination since then.
