An unknown person was reported to have broken into the new office of Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) and destroyed the evidence of crimes and transactions on the acting chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu who has been suspended and replaced because of the allegations of corruption levied against him.
The Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit found out the Ibrahim Magu has transacted about N336 billion to $435 million and about 14 million Euros with Kaduna based Bureau De Change company.
According to source within the presidential panel, the source told the publication that;
“From the issues before the committee, there are two big issues concerning Bureau De Change being allegedly linked to Magu in Kaduna and that Bureau De Change has been discovered by the NFIU to have transacted business in the region of N336 billion, $435 million and about 14 million Euros.
There was another allegation against Magu that a relatively unknown Pastor in Lagos who was linked with Magu was discovered to have N573 million in his account. Also, there was a famous lawyer in Lagos, who took N28 million from the Bureau De Change.”
The person destroyed the computers that contains vital and sensitive information on Magu.
It was reported that some NFIU officials had visited Justice Ayo Salami panel investigating Ibrahim Magu on the 9th of July which was on Thursday to discuss how the ex-acting EFCC boss uses some suspected accounts to move money.
They could have shown the evidence and information gathered to Justice Ayo Salami panel but it was said by the NFIU officials that they do not move around with sensitive information like that according to their protocol, so they asked they Justice Ayo Salami panel to visit their new office to see the information gathered on Ibrahim Magu money laundering on the 10th which was the next day.
The evidence which was supposed to be shown is now being destroyed on that same day Justice Ayo Salami panel was supposed to see it. (very fishy).
Ibrahim Magu appeared at the panel for the 5th day at about 10 am. Sources at the venue, the Old Banquet Hall said Magu had developed a running nose on Thursday, July 9 which prompted the invitation of some medical experts to attend to him.
