Explaining the reason behind the decision, the Senate said that security report available to it, showed that Mr Magu is not fit to be chairman of the body.

In this regard, the lawmakers have sent back his nomination letter to President Muhammadu Buhari.

In July 2016, the Senate had received the letter from the Presidency for the confirmation of the appointment of Magu.

The letter, also sought the confirmation of Mr NdasuOklahoma le Moses, Lawan Mamman, Galadanci Imam, and Adeleke Rafiu as members of the commission.

Mr Magu replaced former EFCC boss, Ibrahim Lamorde in Acting capacity in November 2015, after the former Chairman was removed by President Buhari.

He is an Assistant Commissioner of Police and was also one of the deputies of the former EFCC boss.
