â€œThey can only irritate me but they canâ€™t stop me because all men of goodwill in this country know the sacrifices that we are making to improve the fortunes of our nation. Those who assume that I have properties abroad, can go and claim themâ€, Magu said.
The statement traced the plot to â€œsome shadowy interests at the receiving end of the anti-corruption efforts of the agency.â€

The statement said: â€œThose behind the plot, which is believed to be part of a grand design to discredit the anti-graft Czar, have allegedly finalized plans to name Magu as the owner of choice properties in exotic locations abroad.
â€œThe commission has information that the desperate cabal could take their gambit to the ridiculous extent of purchasing properties and registering them in the name of Ibrahim Magu. â€œThey are also prepared to sponsor some political hirelings who would come out openly to claim they have information about the property acquisitions.
â€œThe objective of the plot is to cast a slur on the unblemished integrity of Magu and expose him to public ridicule
â€œThe Commission, however, wishes to alert the public that Magu has no interest in any property whatsoever outside Nigeria. He has neither bought a house anywhere outside Nigeria.â€
