Magu Sent Back To Police Custody As Operatives Search His Residence

Some policemen attached to the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department on Tuesday searched the home of the suspended  acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu.

Also on Tuesday, the Justice Ayo Salami Presidential Panel, which interrogated Magu on Monday over allegations of corruption, again quizzed the suspended EFCC boss.

The suspended EFCC boss, who was detained by the police after Monday’s interrogation, was returned   to the police custody at 8:30pm on Tuesday.

But earlier at 6pm, policemen searched   Magu’s house located on Abduljalil Street, Karu Site, on the outskirts of Abuja and made away with vital documents.

The policemen, who carried out the search,  were said to be the same ones who arrested Magu on Monday.

A police officer, who confided in Punch, said, “On Tuesday evening, a team of policemen stormed the home of Magu in Karu. That is the house where Magu used to live before he moved to Maitama after his appointment as EFCC chairman.

“The policemen made away with some items and everything will be processed as investigations continue.”

It was learnt that at 830p.m. Magu was driven from the old Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa venue of the panel’s sitting back to the Force Criminal Investigation Bureau where he  passed the night on Monday.

“Yes. Magu has returned to police custody. He left the venue of the panel’s sitting at  8.30pm and was driven back to the same police facility where he was detained on Monday,” a source told one of Punch correspondents on Tuesday evening.
