BREAKING: Tinubu suspends EFCC chair, AbdulRasheed Bawa

President Bola Tinubu is currently meeting Abdulrasheed Bawa, the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting comes barely 24 hours after Tinubu ordered the Department of State Services to vacate the Ikoyi office of the antigraft commission.

The EFCC chairman who arrived at the Villa a few minutes past 2 pm, was ushered into the President’s office complex.

Although the purpose of the meeting is not yet public, it may be connected to the reported fracas between the EFCC and the DSS.

Tinubu, on Tuesday, directed the Department of State Security Service to immediately vacate the Ikoyi office of the EFCC in Lagos.

The president gave the directive when reports that DSS officials stormed the EFCC office located on Awolowo Road, Ikoyi on Tuesday, preventing officials of the anti-graft agency from accessing their workplace, was brought to his attention.
