Former Acting EFCC Chairman Magu Retires From Police Amid Promotion Controversy

  • IGP, Police Service Commission recommended Magu for promotion to Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) as parting gift
  • Office of Attorney General and Minister of Justice said Magu could not be elevated unless he was cleared of allegations against him as EFCC Chairman

Former acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, will today (Thursday May 5, 2022) retire from the Nigeria Police Force after clocking the mandatory retirement age of 60 years.

The retirement comes amid the raging and unresolved controversy on his elevation to the level of Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) from the current level – Commissioner of Police.

The Police Service Commission Standing Committee had recommended him for promotion, but some officials in Attorney-General Force Office had said he could not be elevated until he was cleared of all allegations against him during his tenure as EFCC chairman.

A senior official at the PSC said that the decision to promote Magu followed the recommendation of the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba.

Magu, who had been on suspension since July 2020 over allegations of corruption and insubordination was born on May 5, 1962 and enlisted into the Force on March 3, 1990.

Magu was deployed to the EFCC in May 25, 2012.
