Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state has suspended his chief of staff, Anthony Agbazuere.
This was announced in a press statement on Sunday by the Secretary to the State Government, Chris Ezem.
It 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 video showed Agbazuere spraying naira notes on a dancing Odumeje in a place believed to be his (CoS) office.
