Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has suspended his Chief of Staff, Dr. Anthony Agbazuere. In a press statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Chris Ezem, and made available on Sunday, Governor Ikpeazu directed that the Chief of Staff be suspended with immediate effect.
The suspension comes in few hours after a video surfaced online showing Agbazuere spraying money on Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere, popularly known as Odumeje. The video showed Agbazuere spraying naira notes on Odumeje who was dancing in a place believed to be the office of the Chief of Staff.
The CoS had since the video surfaced, become the target of public outrage on social media, particularly on Twitter.
The controversial Onitsha-based clergyman is the leader of the Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention Deliverance Ministry. He came into the limelight in 2019 when he described himself as ‘the liquid metal’, ‘the war’, and ‘the Indaboski Pahose’ amongst others.
