A retired Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG), Mr. Hakeem Odumosu, has denied being appointed as the chairperson of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Premium Times said.
Premium Times declared that reports emerged, on Tuesday, that the former Commissioner of Police, in Lagos State, had been appointed to replace the suspended Abdulrasheed Bawa.
“Good Morning everyone, I have been inundated with so many calls and messages between yesterday and today on a purported ‘EFCC Appointment’.
“I just want to use this opportunity to debunk this information and say it’s totally untrue,” Mr. Odumosu was quoted as saying.
Recall that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu had suspended the former chairman of the anti-graft for abuse of office on 14 June.
The suspension was due to “weighty allegations of abuse of office”, against Mr. Bawa, a statement from the Presidency said.
