JUST IN! Magu Sinks Deeper When Panel Probes Him Over Alleged Ownership Of Dubai Properties
There may be extra bothered for embattled performing chairman of the Financial and Monetary Crimes Fee as he quizzed over possession of Dubai properties.
The suspended performing chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu could also be in for critical bother because 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.

It reported that the panel would perform forensics on paperwork recovered from Magu’s home in addition to an evaluation of his earnings and financial institution data.
On Tuesday, a crew of safety officers reportedly searched his properties in Abuja and had been reported to have left with some paperwork, though it was not confirmed if something incriminating was discovered throughout the search.
