EFCC Boss homes was searched by Security agents

A combined team of riot policemen and operatives of the State Security Services (SSS) are currently searching the residence of Ibrahim Magu, the suspended boss of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

A source close to the presidential panel set up to investigate Mr Magu said operatives were detailed to conduct searches at Mr Magu’s private home in Karu and his official residence in the Maitama District of the Nigerian capital.

A family source who asked not to be mentioned informed this newspaper that Mr Magu is still with the presidential panel.

“As I speak with you our men are on their way to Maitama, having finished with his house in Karu,” the source said.

A domestic staff at the residence confirmed the presence of the security men as of 7:30 pm.

He said the security operatives arrived in four vehicles and spent over an hour searching the house.

“They searched the house but found nothing so they wrote a report and both of us signed,” said a security guard in the house who was not authorised to speak.

Mr Magu was suspended on Tuesday by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration amidst allegations of gross misconduct, two senior EFCC officials familiar with the development told POLITIC360.
