EFCC acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu, has instituted a lawsuit against The Sun Newspaper over claims that he owns a house in the Maitama area of Abuja.
In a story published over the weekend, The newspaper, claimed he is being probed for allegedly owning two mansions in the Maitama Area of Abuja linked to his wife.
The houses which were reportedly bought last year, were said to be located on Danube Street, Maitama and Missouri Street, off Colorado Close, Ministers Hill. Magu in a statement released today, denied the claims.
He stated that he has instructed his lawyers to file a lawsuit against The Sun Newspapers.
“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? The Sun can take over the properties if they have evidence that they belong to me or my wife. 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”he said
