Magu was claimed to have misused recovered loot and selling seized assets to colleagues.
Security agents looked through the home of Magu in Karu, Abuja (FCT) late Tuesday while his own things were moved out of his official living arrangement in the Maitama territory of the country’s capital.
A family source said the security agents who did the activity discovered nothing implicating in the house except for they left with certain documents.
