AIG Hakeem Odumosu, former Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, Wednesday, debunked news circulating online that he has been appointed as chairman of Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).
Reports emerged on Tuesday night that President Bola Tinubu had approved the appointment of Odumosu as the substantive Chairman of EFCC.
But in a statement, Odumosu, who retired as an Assistant Inspector-General of Police, said he was not aware of such an appointment.
He described the circulation of the fake appointment as an unnecessary distraction by mischief makers.
Daily Trust had reported how Tinubu suspended Abdulrasheed Bawa, Chairman of the EFCC.
The suspension was announced in a statement last Wednesday by Willie Bassey, Director, Information in the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
