Mr Ciroma is now deploying the same media tactics as the removed immediate boss of the agency.
According to the source, “the news spreading about Mr Ciroma taking over the agency is an attempt by the FCT Police Commissioner to plant himself into the minds of the people and gain the attention of those in the Villa, so that he may be seen as a preferred candidate.”
But the staff warned that “Mr Ciroma would be worse than Mr Magu and he must not be considered.”
