Magu, DSS DG Reunite At Aso Rock Mosque
For the first time since his return to the country from his extended medical vacation in London, President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday, observed Jumat prayer inside the State House mosque in Abuja.
Among those who prayed with the President were the Director of The Department of State Security (DSS), Lawal Daura; the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu and the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Hammed Ali.
This is the first time that Magu and Daura will be seen in public since the Senate rejected Magu’s nomination as EFCC Chairman on Wednesday.
The Senate based its action on a report of the DSS.
The DSS did not give Magu a clean bill of integrity ahead of his screening.
"Magu has failed integrity test and will constitute a liability to the anti-corruption drive of the present administration,” read a report the agency presented to the Senate.
Magu had denied all the allegations, saying the DSS did not give him fair hearing.
