Attack by suspected gunmen on the residence of the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr Ibrahim Magu has led to the death of a police officer.
According to The Nation, the gunmen stormed Magu’s farmhouse in Karshi in the Federal Capital Territory at about 10pm Tuesday and exchanged fire with the policemen on duty.
It was also gathered some suspects had been issuing threats to the family house in Borno State. The threats led to the deployment of policemen to the uncompleted bungalow in Karshi.
This latest attack came barely 48 hours after Magu said the anti-corruption will be a do-or-die affair. “For us as a country, the fight against corruption is a ‘do or die’ affair; we have to win the battle or die trying,” Magu had said at a rally in Abuja where the EFCC commemorated the World Anti-Corruption Day.
“The fight against corruption is now a war in which there is a clear line between forces of evil and those of good; between agents of progress and reactionary elements who mean no good.”
