Retired Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) Hakeem Odumosu has debunked the report that he has been appointed by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the substantive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The former Lagos Police Commissioner made this known in a statement on Wednesday morning.
He wrote, “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.”
President Tinubu had suspended indefinitely the former chairman of the anti-corruption body on Wednesday, June 14.
According to a release from the presidency on, Bawa’s suspension is “to allow for proper investigation into his conduct while in office. This follows a weighty allegation of abuse of office leveled against him.
“Mr Bawa has been directed to immediately hand over the affairs of his office to the Director, Operations in the commission, who will oversee the affairs of the Office of the Chairman pending the conclusion of investigation.”
Bawa’s suspension came days after Tinubu suspended the Central Bank Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, from office.
