Odumosu clears air on appointment as EFCC chairman
Retired Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) Hakeem Odumosu has denied reports that he was appointed as a substantive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Reports emerged on Tuesday that Odumosu’s appointment is subject to confirmation by the Senate.
Recall that President Bola Tinubu suspended the former chairman of the anti-corruption agency for misconduct while in office.
Bawa was subsequently invited by the Department of State Services (DSS) for questioning.
But a statement issued and signed by Odumosu on Wednesday denied being aware of such an appointment.
He described the circulation of the appointment as fake and urged Nigerians to disregard the report.
”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.
“This information must have emanated from mischief makers and should be totally disregarded,” he said.
