Choice Properties Abroad on Magu’s Name are Not His, claims EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has yesterday, November 1, cried out that its Acting Chairman, Alhaji Ibrahim Magu, is allegedly being framed as owner of some choice properties abroad.

Making the disclosure to newsmen yesterday in Abuja, the spokesman for the commission, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren stated as follows –

“Shadowy interests at the receiving end” of the agency’s anti-corruption campaign were behind the alleged scheme.

Those behind the plot, which is believed to be part of a grand design to discredit the anti-graft czar, have allegedly finalized plans to name Magu as the owner of choice properties in exotic locations abroad.

The commission has information that the desperate cabal could take their gambit to the ridiculous extent of purchasing properties and registering them in the name of Ibrahim Magu to make the plot believable.

They are also prepared to sponsor some political hirelings who would come out openly to claim they have information about the property acquisitions…

The commission, however, wishes to alert the public that Magu has no interest in any property whatsoever outside Nigeria.

He has neither bought a house anywhere outside Nigeria nor commissioned any person or corporate body to acquire property in his name or any name remotely linked to him.”
