Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has suspended his chief of staff, Anthony Agbazuere.
This was announced in a press statement on Sunday. The statement was signed by the secretary to the state government, Chris Ezem.
Mr Ikpeazu terminated Agbazuere’s appointment on Sunday after an undated video emerged online showing him (Agbazuere) spraying money on controversial clergyman Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere alias Odumeje.
The statement noted that Agbazuere’s suspension takes immediate effect.
”Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, has directed the immediate suspension from office of the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Dr ACB Agbazuere,” the short statement read.
The suspension was announced a few hours after a video surfaced online showing Agbazuere spraying money in his office on Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere, popularly known as Odumeje.
The CoS had since the video surfaced online become the target of public outrage on social media.
Apart from the video trending online, ‘Indaboski’ and ‘Abia’ were among the Nigerian trends on Twitter.
The video showed Agbazuere spraying naira notes on a dancing Odumeje in a place believed to be his (CoS) office.
Odumeje is a popular and controversial Onitsha-based clergyman.
The preacher is the leader of Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention Deliverance Ministry.
