Security operatives comb Magu’s Abuja homes

There are emerging reports, though yet unconfirmed, that the Abuja and Karu homes of detained EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu, have been ransacked by security operatives, mainly from the Nigeria Police Force, in search of incriminating evidence.

The security operatives were said to have conducted the search on Magu’s homes, Tuesday evening and left with vital documents.

Following corruption allegations leveled against Magu, a Presidential Panel, chaired by Justice Ayo Salami was set up to probe him.

He was invited by the panel to the Presidential Villa on Monday, where he was grilled for hours and later detained in police custody.

The panel resumed Magu’s matter on Tuesday, the same day he was suspended as the acting chairman of the EFCC, a commission he had been in charge of in acting capacity since 2015.

It was learnt that he was taken back to police custody after the panel quizzed him for the second day on Tuesday.

The AGF, in the report asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the EFCC boss over his alleged involvement in multiple corrupt practices.
