The Police Service Commission (PSC) said it will not promote the suspended acting Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, until it gets clearance from the office of the Attorney General and Minister of Justice and the Office of the Inspector General of Police.
Magu, a commissioner of police, was billed for promotion to the rank of Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG).
Spokesperson of PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, said in a statement on Thursday that the decision was taken at the PSC’s 12th plenary meeting held on Tuesday and Wednesday, and presided over by the chairman of the commission, Musiliu Smith.
“The Police Service Commission has confirmed the acting appointments of three Deputy Inspectors General of Police. The Commission also approved the promotion of twenty four Commissioners of Police to the next rank of Assistant Inspectors General of Police. The Commission however declined the promotion of CP, Ibrahim Magu, former acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,” the statement reads.
