There is perceived an internal crisis in the EFCC as aggrieved Civilian Course one operative of the Commission have petitioned President Buhari over an alleged attempt by the Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu to stagnate their career and “Policize” the Organization.
In a leaked petition to the President, the staff claimed that Magu has refused to grant them promotion even after spending five to six years on the same level. They explained that the move was intended to bar them from heading the Commission while perpetually ensuring that Police officers continue to flood the Commission.
The staff also claimed that police officers in the Commission are interfering with the investigation as they usually interface with the suspect, advise them on what to say, tampering with evidence, steal exhibits and even disclose official information.
They also complained that Magu has brought their juniors from the police to head operation units established in most states even when they are more qualified and trained to handle such units
They added that the untrained police officers would continue to affect the operations of the Commission unless something is done.
They appealed to the President to investigate the matter and address the issue if he truly wants to fight corruption
