I don’t have houses in Maitama – Magu

I don’t have houses in Maitama – Magu

The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, has denied owning houses in the Maitama area of Abuja.
Magu was quoted as saying this in a statement by its spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, on Monday.
The statement was in reaction to a report captioned, ‘Magu under fresh probe over two Abuja mansions’ which was published by a national newspaper on Sunday.

The EFCC boss dismissed the story as a work of fiction and threatened to take legal action against the newspaper and the authors of the story.
The report claimed that Magu is being probed regarding the ownership of two mansions in the Maitama area of Abuja allegedly linked to his wife.
The newspaper claimed that “the houses being investigated are located in Danube Street, Maitama and Missouri Street, off Colorado Close, Ministers Hill.” It added that the two houses were bought last year.
Magu stated that neither himself nor his wife own any property in Maitama.
The EFCC boss urged Nigerians to disregard the report as false and designed by the authors to achieve motives that are obvious.
He said, “I don’t have any mansion anywhere in Maitama. Would I have two mansions in Abuja yet choose to live in a rented apartment in the same community?
“This is another calculated attempt to smear my reputation. They may have got 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 newspaper.”
