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.
A top police officer told The PUNCH that the policemen searched Magu’s house located on Abduljalil Street, Karu Site, on the outskirts of Abuja, for several hours 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.
The officer 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.”
Meanwhile, it was learnt that Magu was detained for a second day after answering questions from the panel for over five hours on Tuesday.
He was subsequently taken into custody again at about 7pm.
A top source told The PUNCH that a police investigation was ongoing simultaneously with that of the panel.
