The Chief of Staff to the Governor of Abia State; Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, Dr. Anthony Agbazuere has been suspended from office.
Agbazuere was suspended on Sunday afternoon by his boss in statement issued on behalf of the governor by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Barr. Chris Ezem.
The Permanent Secretary, Government House, Mr. Alozie Odoemelam, has been directed to perform the duties of the office of Chief of Staff until further notice.
Though no reason was given for his suspension, unconfirmed reports have it that the suspension of Agbazuere may not have been unconnected with the recent invitation of a self-acclaimed Prophet, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere popularly known as “Odumeje” to the State House.
A video which trended on social media at the weekend suspended Agbazuere was caught on camera spraying money on the Onitsha based prophet in his office, an action many who lambasted both the Chief of Staff and the Ikpeazu led government said was undeserving of a public office holder and a crucial stakeholder in the incumbent government in the state.
“Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, has directed the immediate suspension from office of the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Dr ACB Agbazuere.
