The Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazụ, has suspended his Chief of Staff, ACB Agbazuere.

The governor’s decision was announced in a statement issued by the Secretary to the State Government, Chris Ezem.

Abia governor suspends chief of staff for spraying cash on Odumeje

He said the suspension is with immediate effect.

The suspension may not be unconnected to a viral video where the Chief of staff was seen spraying money on controversial prophet Odumeje popularly known as Indabosky.

The video was published on Twitter.

A senior government official who is in the know of the suspension chastised the COS over his non-challent attitude

“I can assure you that the governor wasn’t aware that Odumeje was even there (in Government House). The governor was away from the state when it happened,” he told newsmen

In his statement on Sunday, Mr Ezem did not specify the duration of the suspension.

He, however, said the governor also appointed the Permanent Secretary in charge of Government House, Alozie Odoemelam, as the acting chief of staff.

Nigerian elite are known to usually spray naira notes publicly to display affluence.

Nigeria’s economy is currently in a recession. Such action by the now suspended Abia official, some commentators argue, underscores the insensitivity of some Nigerian public officials.
