Security details attached to the official and personal houses of the suspended Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, boss, Ibrahim Magu, in Abuja have been asked to leave on Friday evening.
Premium Times reported that vehicles in the official house in Maitama were also driven away.
Mr Magu was arrested on Monday and has since been facing a presidential investigative panel over alleged corruption and insubordination. He has been detained since his arrest on Monday, at the police facility in Abuja.
The Ministry of Justice, on Friday, announced the approval of President Muhammadu Buhari to suspend Magu from his position to enable smooth investigation.
A source in the family who asked not to be named hinted Premium Times about the withdrawal of the police officers from the two houses.
“We are seriously concerned about the personal security of his (Mr Magu’s) immediate family. They have literally being thrown to the hyenas, knowing fully well the dangers,” the source said.
The source said the family is worried that in view of the “enemies” garnered by Mr Magu on account of his work, his life and that of his family members are in danger without adequate security cover.
A WhatsApp message sent to police spokesperson, Frank Mba to confirm the development was yet to be replied to as at the time of publishing this report
