The order, our correspondent gathered, was handed down on Friday following a request by the Presidential Panel investigating the allegations of graft and misconduct against the former EFCC acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu.

The suspension is not unconnected to the ongoing investigation into corruption allegations levelled against suspended Acting Chairman of the agency, Ibrahim Magu.

The suspension is expected to take immediate effect.
