The report by Guardian, says Magu, who the Senate did not confirm citing negative security report against him from Department of States Security, has been redeployed back to the police force to open the way for a fresh person to be presented by President Muhammadu Buhari as his nominee to head the anti-graft agency before the Senate.

The paper said to make Magu’s redeployment look like a routine exercise, some senior Police officers would be re-deployed by the Police hierarchy to resume as conventional Police officers.

To that effect, it said Magu has received a letter from the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, directing him to hand over to the Director of Operations in the Commission.
