Hakeem Odumosu Denies Appointment As EFCC Chair



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.

A report circulated late Tuesday that Odumosu, following the suspension of the former chairman of the anti-corruption agency, Abdulrasheed Bawa, was appointed as the chairman of the anti-graft agency.

However, the former Lagos Commissioner of Police, in a statement he issued and signed on Wednesday, denied the 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.
