The embattled acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Maguhas been blocked from meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Following his rejection by the Senate, the embattled EFCC chairman, who is said to be at loggerheads with some members of Buhari’s kitchen cabinet, tried to see the President on Saturday night but his efforts were futile.
There have been reports that Magu is involved in a power struggle with the Director General of the DSS, Mr. Lawal Daura, and some top aides of the President, who are said to be against his confirmation.
Multiple sources in the presidency confirmed to our correspondent on Saturday that Magu was sighted in the Presidential Villa around 6.30pm on Friday.
While he failed to see the President, Magu attended the Asset Recovery team meeting which holds weekly at the Presidency.
