Security has been strengthened for the Acting Chairman of the EFCC Mr. Ibrahim Magu and his family, including his aged mother.
It was learnt that some strangers have been prowling Magu’s residence in Maiduguri. Some policemen have been deployed in Magu’s uncompleted bungalow in Karshi, Abuja.
According to a source who who pleaded not to be named, the last seven months had been tough for Magu because of his refusal to bow to pressure from some high-profile suspects and Politically-Exposed Persons.
The source said the pressure had grave implications on Magu’s and his relations’ safety.
The development has led to the review of Magu’s and most of the key investigators’ security.
