There is more trouble for embattled acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission as he quizzed over ownership of Dubai properties.
The suspended acting chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu may be in for serious trouble as the Presidential panel investigating him questioned him on properties he supposedly acquired in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Magu, who has been in police custody since his arrest on Monday, was interrogated for the third time on Wednesday.
According to Punch, the panel is also investigating allegations that N39bn was diverted from recovered loot.
It reported that the panel would carry out forensics on documents recovered from Magu’s house as well as an analysis of his earnings and bank records.
On Tuesday, a team of security officials reportedly searched his homes in Abuja and were reported to have left with some documents, although it was not confirmed if anything incriminating was found during the search.
This comes as the presidential panel continues its investigation into the activities of the commission under the leadership of Magu.
It would be recalled that allegations of misconduct was levelled against him by the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.
Malami, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, was said to have written to President Muhammadu Buhari, demanding the removal of Magu as the acting chairman of the anti-graft agency.
Meanwhile, there has been no official announcement from the Federal Government regarding appointment of Magu’s purported successor, although names of his possible replacement have been in circulation on social media.
