I do not have houses in Maitama - EFCC boss

I do not have houses in Maitama - EFCC boss

  Ibrahim Magu has said that he does not have houses in Abuja

 The acting EFCC boss says he has been wrongly accused by detractors 

  He says there is no way he would have mansions and choose to live in a rented apartment 

The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has denied owning any house or houses in the Maitama area of Abuja, claiming that his detractors are trying to mar his good name.

Reacting to a report captioned, “Magu Under Fresh Probe over 2 Abuja Mansions”, which appeared in a national daily, the EFCC boss dismissed the story as a work of fiction and threatens legal action against the newspaper and the authors of the story. 
The report which appeared on page 9 of the newspaper, among others, claimed that Magu is being probed regarding the ownership of two mansions in the Maitama area of Abuja allegedly linked to his wife. 
Leadership reports that the spokesperson of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, noted that relying on ghost sources, the newspaper claimed that “the houses being investigated are located in Danube Street, Maitama and Missouri Street, off Colorado Close, Ministers Hill and the two houses were said to have been bought last year.” 

Magu stated that neither himself nor his wife own any property in Maitama and urged Nigerians to disregard the report as false and designed by the authors to achieve motives that are obvious. “I don’t have any mansion anywhere in Maitama. Would I have two mansions in Abuja yet chose to live in a rented apartment in the same community? They can take over the properties if they have evidence that they belong to me or my wife”, Magu said. we gathered that the acting chairman is taking legal action against the newspaper.

“This is another calculated attempt to smear my reputation. They may have gotten away with such false reports in the past but I will not let this go unchallenged. I have already briefed my lawyers to institute legal action against The Sun Newspaper,” Magu declared
