Magu in a letter by his counsel, Wahab Shittu, to the paper, is seeking a N5 billion compensation from the publishers of The SUN newspaper, for “libelous imputations and statements” made against him in a story published on the March 25, 2017 edition of the Saturday Sun , captioned “Magu Under Fresh Probe over 2 Abuja Mansions”.

In the letter dated March 30, 2017, the EFCC boss noted that the authors of the story “willfully and maliciously made false, destructive, and defamatory statements” against him.

The paper had alleged that Magu owned “two mansions on different streets in highbrow Maitama area of Abuja”.

Denying the report in the letter, Magu reiterated that “neither himself nor his wife own any property in Maitama”.

He demanded for N5 billion compensation, as well as public apology or retraction from the publishers within seven days.
