Contrary to speculations, the Police Service Commission, PSC, has excluded the former acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Commissioner, CP Ibrahim Magu from its promotion list approved today.
Twenty four others were lucky, moving to the rank of Assistant Inspectors General of Police.
PSC Head of Press and Public Relations, Ikechukwu Ani in a statement on Thursday said 24 CPs, 35 DCPs, 52 ACPs, 50 CSPs were successful.
He said the decisions were high points of the Commission’s 12th Plenary Meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday presided over by Commission’s chairman, Musiliu Smith, a retired Inspector General of Police.
He said: “The Commission declined the promotion of CP Magu pending clearance from the office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice and the Office of the Inspector General of Police”.
Magu, who served as acting chairman of the EFCC from 2015 to 2020, was rejected twice by the Senate for confirmation.
