Odumosu Denies Reported Appointment As EFCC Chairman

A retired Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG), Hakeem Odumosu, has denied being appointed as the chairperson of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission

Reports had earlier emerged that the former commissioner of police in Lagos had been appointed to replace the suspended Abdulrasheed Bawa.

President Bola Tinubu had suspended the former chairman of the anti-graft for abuse of office on 14 June.

A statement from the presidency said the suspension was due to “weighty allegations of abuse of office”, against Mr Bawa.

Mr Bawa’s suspension was “to allow for proper investigation into his conduct while in office.”
