The presidential panel, investigating allegations of corruption leveled against the suspended Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, have extended its probe to properties he allegedly acquired in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

This is even as Magu, who is believed to have been removed from office as acting chairman of the EFCC, is spending a fourth day in the custody of the Police Force Criminal Investigation Department in Abuja.
Ownership of poperties worth millions of dollars were said to have been linked to Magu, with some of them acquired between 2017 and 2018.

On Tuesday night, a team of security officials reportedly searched his homes in Abuja and were reported to have left with some documents, although it was not confirmed if anything incriminating was found during the search.
The investigation of Magu followed the allegations of misconduct levelled against him by the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.

Malami, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, was said to have written to President Muhammadu Buhari, demanding the removal of Magu as the acting chairman of the anti-graft agency.
