Ibrahim Magu, suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has been sent back to area 10 force criminal investigation department (FCID) of the police in Abuja where he spent the night on Monday.
A source disclosed this to TheCable, saying he was moved to detention at the end of questioning by the panel on Tuesday.
He was arrested on Monday and whisked to the presidential villa in Abuja where the panel set up to probe the commission has been sitting.
Some of the aides of the anti-graft czar had earlier moved his personal belongings out of his official residence in the Maitama area of the nation’s capital while security operatives raided his residence at Karu, still in Abuja.
A family source said operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) who carried out the operation found nothing incriminating in the house.
Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation (AGF), had asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sack Magu over some “weighty” allegations.
