The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied owning houses in Maitama district of Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
According to Punch, the acting EFCC boss also threatened to sue Sun Newspapers for publishing a false report about him.
The media house published that Magu was being investigated for owning two houses located on Danube Street, Maitama and Missouri Street, off Colorado Close, Ministers Hill, reports say.
The acting EFCC boss, through the agency’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren 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.”
Magu also called on Nigerians to disregard the story, describing it as a false report aimed at achieving a sinister motive.
The acting EFCC boss’ confirmation was rejected by the Senate recently, following a letter from the Department of State Services (DSS) indicting him of corruption.
