EXCLUSIVE | Presidency Screens Police, Army, Customs Officers For EFCC Job

Aruga Joe Omokaro – Abuja

The Presidency is believed to be secretly screening some senior serving and retired police police officers and some senior military and Customs officers to be appointed substantive chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The former Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa was early this month suspended by President Bola Tinubu.
The Director of Operations was directed to act.

The reason for suspending Bawa was not officially made public. But there are rife speculations that, he was suspended over allegations of official corruption.

Discrete investigations by The SUPREME reveal that, one retired Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) from the North is said to be the most favoured among the prospective candidates. The next officer being considered is a retired Commissioner of Police (CP) from the South West.

The SUPREME discretely gathered that, the army officer is a retired Colonel, while the Customs officer is a retired Comptroller. Both officers are said to be from the North.

Further discrete investigations reveal that, resumes of two serving senior police officers, one from the South South were recently forwarded to the Presidency for consideration.

Our discrete investigations further reveal that, one of the police officers had headed a section in the police which functions relate to anti-graft activities.

Our reliably source hinted that, a new substantive chairman of the anti-graft agency “would be announced in the first week of July if they (screening personnel) finish early.”
