His arrest comes a few days after the attorney-general of the federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami accused the anti-graft agency chairman of gross infractions.

The AGF asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sack Magu over some “weighty” allegations, including the diversion of recovered loot.

In addition to allegedly re-looting the recovered loot, Malami accused the acting EFCC chairman of insubordination and misconduct.
