The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has expressed shock at the attack on the Abuja home of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu, The Cable reports.
The EFCC chair’s home, in a farm in Abuja, was invaded by gunmen who beat a policeman to his death and carted away herds of cattle and sheep.
The group’s president, Ishaq Akintola, terming the robbery as an attack on the life of Magu, has said “heads must roll” if anything happens to the EFCC chair.
He said the attack is the third attempt on Magu’s life in 2017, and it proves that “powerful people” are attempting to get rid of him. He said:
Unknown gunmen have again attacked the house of the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Magu.
The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) expresses shock at this wanton waste of life and the desperation to assassinate the EFCC boss.
Heads must roll if anything happens to Magu.
Being the third attempt on the life of the EFCC boss this year alone, there is no iota of doubt that some powerful people just want him out of the way by hook or by crook.
The handwriting is on the wall and the federal government must give marching orders to the nation’s security agencies to leave no stone unturned in the mission to protect Magu.
We believe it is high time FG read the riot act to the security agencies.
