The Police Service Commission (PSC) is believed to be preparing to advance him to the post as Assistant Inspector General (AIG) prior to his resignation from the police force in May.
It is known that the Attorney General for the Federation, Abubakar Malami, is not happy over recommendations of the IGP or the PSC Standing Committee of Magu’s suggestions to raise his position (SAN).
The drama for Ibrahim Magu began in July of 2020 when he was sacked from his the post of acting EFCC chairman by President Muhammadu Buhari, over Malami’s allegations against him . He was then summoned before the presidential commission helmed by the former Justice Ayo Salami set up to investigate his allegations of corruption and insubordination.
The PSC in July last year did not recommend Magu in the promotion of 24 CPs and officers.
The commissioner who represents the media in the PSC the Mr. Austin Braimoh, had declared that the former EFCC director might not receive retirement benefits until he has been cleared of the charges leveled at him by AGF.
A senior PSC official claimed that this former EFCC is expected to be promoted and that there was no case of disciplinary action pending against him.
“Though the government set up an advisory panel, they were unable to inform the commission and Magu was the highest-ranking police commissioner for a long period of time and we’ve been slowing down his promotion,” Punch quoted the source as saying.
