-EFCC tightens security around Magu and other key operatives.
In the aftermaths of Wednesday’s gun attack on the head office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja, security for the agency’s Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu and his family, has been doubled.
The attack, is seen as a timely warning to all and has led to the review of Magu’s security as well as that of other key officers.
Additional security operatives have been deployed to Magu’s residence in Maiduguri where his aged mother lives and in his Abuja residence located in Karshi.
In the past few weeks, security had been beefed up for Magu and his immediate family because of threats from some forces according to sources from the Nation.
“His office was also recently reorganized in line with the new security model. It is so bad that Magu now keeps his itinerary to himself until the last minute.

“Hitherto, there was no protection for Magu’s aged mother in Maiduguri. But of recent, some suspected elements have been prowling the family house in the Borno State capital and issuing threats to the woman.
“Due to old age, the mother of the Acting chairman could not recognise these elements. To avoid any harm, security has now been provided in and around the house.
“And following the recent raid of Magu’s uncompleted building in Karshi, Abuja by some suspected agents, the police have deployed in more men for sentry duties.
“It has really been tough because the pressure is too much on Magu, EFCC investigators and their families.
“With the invasion of the strategic office of the EFCC in Zone 7, it is evident that we need to strengthen security for all our operatives.”
