Bulletproof cars seized from Magu as his office sealed
Operatives of the Nigerian Police, on Monday, seized two official bulletproof vehicles of suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu.
According to a source with the police, one of the bulletproof vehicles was seized in Abuja while the second was confiscated in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
It was gathered that the vehicles were taken to the Force Headquarters but later moved to the commission’s headquarters.
Besides seizing the bulletproof cars, Magu’s office on the 10th floor of the new EFCC building located along Airport Road, Jabi, Wuse II, has also been sealed.
Some detectives were said to have stormed the commission’s head office and sealed the office.
Sources said that workers were barred from accessing the entire floor where the office was located.
Magu is being grilled by the panel at the Presidential Villa over alleged mismanagement of recovered funds and lack of transparency in the recovered assets.
He is also being accused of misappropriating N700 million earmarked for the training of EFCC staff.
