JUST IN: Magu Escapes Assassination As Dreaded Gunmen Attack House, Killed Police Guard


Ibrahim Magu
The Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, Ibrahim Magu may have  escaped assassination as some dreaded gunmen invaded his bungalo farmhouse on Tuesday night and a policeman on duty reportedly killed.

It was learnt that the gunmen stormed the farmhouse in Karshi Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory at about 10pm and exchanged fire with the policemen(Sergeant) on sentry who was hit and he died instantly.

This is the second time that the same the house will be attacked by unknown elements.


This latest attack came barely 48 hours after Magu said the anti-corruption will be a do-or-die affair.

The last 10 months had been tough for Magu because of his refusal to bow to pressure from some high-profile suspects and Politically Exposed Persons, and as a result of threats to Magu’s life, security was beefed up for him and his immediate family leading to the deployment of policemen to the uncompleted bungalow in Karshi.

The EFCC boss, Monday, after a walk to mark the anti corruption day, said; “For those of us on this side, in the anti-corruption agencies of government, in the media, and civil society, the dagger is drawn and I believe I am speaking the mind of everyone on this side that we intend to neither retreat nor surrender in our noble intention to cure our country of the evils of corruption”.

“For us as a country, the fight against corruption is a ‘do or die’ affair, we have to win the battle or die trying”, he added.
