Yusuf Alli, Abuja
Security agencies have uncovered plots to stop the nomination of Ibrahim Magu as substantive chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) on trial for corruption and some Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) have been coopted into the anti-Magu’s protest march across the country.
The affected allies have also joined forces with some governors, who are interested in taking over the EFCC to cover up their tracks.
It was learnt that some of these people are bankrolling protest marches against Magu.
It was discovered that the campaign is financed by a high profile defendant in money laundering and corruption matter.
The sponsors and leaders of the plot were also said to be apprehensive of the continued stay of Magu, despite the fact that his four-year tenure ended on November 9.
It was gathered that the clandestine moves against Magu border on the sole objective of easing him out of the EFCC at all costs.
