The Offices of the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) were vandalised on Thursday night after the presidential panel probng Ibrahim Magu requested for the transaction history of a Kaduna-based bureau de change (BDC), sources familiar with the investigation have told TheCable.
The Panel was told that the BDC, which allegedly has links to the suspended acting chairman of the Economic and Finanical Crimes commission (EFCC), has recently transacted businesses worth over N500 Billion in different currencies –N336 Billion, N435 million and 14 Million Euro.
However, there was a twist in the tale when the panel asked that the transaction history of the BDC be made available by NFIU, the central naional agency that handles disclosures and intelligence in the financial sector.
Its offices were then vandalised, forcing members of the panel to seek audience with President Muhammadu Buhari, who immediately approved the suspension of Magu from office and the overhaul of EFCC security personnel to avoid interference with the investigations.
The attack believed to have happened overnight was discovered Friday Morning at the NO 12 Ibrahim Taiwo Street, Aso Villa office of the NFIU
