Oseni Kazeem Oluwasina has been appointed as the new head of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Ilorin, Kwara, zonal office.

Naija News reports that Oluwasina will replace Ishyaku Sharu, who was recently deployed from the state.

The new EFCC boss was posted to the zonal office along with 36 other officers across the country in a new directive released on Wednesday.

The appointment of Oluwasina is with immediate effect.

Several police officers deployed to the agency have been redeployed by the Inspector General of Police to police formations across the country.

This according to sources is part of the Federal government’s efforts to sanitize the anti-graft agency, following the suspension of its embattled chairman, Ibrahim Magu.

Naija News reports that Ibrahim Magu, former EFFC Chairman, was suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari and replaced by Mohammed Umar.

Abubakar Malami (SAN), attorney-general of the federation (AGF), had accused him of mismanaging loot recovered by the anti-graft agency.

The former EFCC boss was detained for 10 days before he was eventually granted bail.
