Sequel to the suspension of Ibrahim Magu as the acting head of the anti- corruption agency in the country, Mohammed Umar, director of operations at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been named acting chairman of the agency.



The new acting chairman has been confirmed to have taken charge of the agency.

Umar, who is a Deputy Commissioner of Police, is the second most senior operative at the Commission.

It was learnt that there had been moves to install the Secretary, Ola Olukoyede, as the chairman pending the suspension of Ibrahim Magu.

However, Olukoyede was not favoured as he is a civilian.

There were, however, indications on Wednesday afternoon that the Commissioner of Police, FCT Command, Bala Ciroma, is favoured as the substantive chairman.
