The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, on Wednesday, said he had submitted the report on the probe of the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Babachir Lawal.

Malami disclosed to Punch that he submitted the report to President Muhammadu Buhari last week.

The President had, on December 18, 2016, directed Malami to probe all top government officials accused of corruption.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, who announced the presidential directive, had said any of the government officials found guilty of the allegations levelled against them would not escape prosecution.

Based on the directive, the AGF had queried the SGF and the acting chairman of the EFCC over allegations levelled against them by the Senate and the Department of State Services respectively.

They were reported to have since replied their queries.

Malami, when asked if he had submitted his report on the investigations of Lawal and Magu, said, “Yes, Friday last week.”

The AGF explained that the report was laid before the President who ordered the probe.

“It was submitted to the President,” he stated.

There were reports on January 1 that Buhari ordered the AGF to submit the report on Magu through the Vice-President.

According to the reports, the President delegated the Vice-President to make inputs to the recommendation of the AGF on the EFCC acting chairman.
