Nigeria’s anti-graft agency has dismissed rumours that a new spokesperson, Tony Amokeodo, has been appointed.
The agency was reacting to news making the rounds on social media that a new spokesperson has been appointed.
“The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has been drawn to an unfounded news report in the social media and some respectable media organisations that Mr. Tony Amokeodo, a journalist, has been appointed as the Spokesperson to the acting Chairman of the Commission,” acting head of media, Tony Orilade said in a statement.
“The Commission wishes to state that the said Mr. Amokeodo has not been appointed as a spokesperson.
“The Spokesperson remains Mr. Tony Orilade who is in acting capacity in the absence of Mr. Wilson Uwujaren.
“Uwujaren is on a one month course at the prestigious Nigerian Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies, NIPSS, Kuru, Jos, Plateau State,” Orilade added.
