The ongoing probe of the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu has reached a new level as Security Operatives on Tuesday raided the residences of the embattled anti-graft boss.
Magu, who is currently suspended pending the conclusion of an investigation into his activities as chairman by a Special Presidential Panel, has also been in police detention since the probe began on Monday.
Officials of the Department of State Services and riot policemen stormed Mr. Magu’s private home in Karu and his official residence in Maitama in Abuja. It’s unclear if sensitive documents and any other belonging were taken by the operatives.
Magu allegedly spent last night in police cell at the Force Criminal Investigation Department Headquarters in Area 10, Garki, Abuja, after he was quizzed on Monday for about six hours by a Presidential panel, chaired by a former President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami.
Magu was detained at the FCID after the panel grilled him. Sources reveal that President Muhammadu Buhari is aware of Magu’s current travails.
