The leadership of the Nigeria Police Force has reportedly taken some major decisions concerning the embattled acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu.
POLITICS NIGERIA had reported that President Muhammadu Buhari had approved the suspension of Magu and immediately approved the appointment of Mohammed Umar as the new head of the commission.
In a statement on Friday, the President said the decision to relieve Magu of his job is to allow him to answer questions asked by the Presidential Investigation Panel over allegations of corruption leveled against him.
But according to Police sources, the Police leadership has decided that Magu should answer the allegations leveled against him. adding that the Force will not be dragged into his plight.
The sources said Magu has been abandoned to his fate, following his refusal to identify with the police hierarchy while he was the commission’s boss.
They added that while Magu was presiding over EFCC, he deliberately failed to respect senior police officers and never attended senior officers meetings chaired by the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Muhammed.
It was learned that the IGP summoned a meeting with the Force Chief Legal Officer, CP Augustine Salomi, in attendance, where the decision was taken.
