Some youths on Monday took to the streets of Umuahia, Abia State capital, urging Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to recall his suspended chief of staff Anthony Agbazuere.

Mr Ikpeazu had on December 6 ordered Agbazuere’s suspension following a viral video that captured him spraying naira notes on a controversial cleric Prophet Odumeje inside the Government House.

Speaking on behalf of the protesters, Donatus Obiukwu said although the chief of staff abused his office, Ikpeazu should have mercy on him.

“We know the chief of staff guffed by his actions. But we beg you, Governor Ikpeazu, our loving father, please forgive Agbazuere for his offence,” Mr Obiukwu said.

“We are begging you to recall him back because we can guaranty you that such a thing will never happen again, please, our governor, recall the suspension and give him back his job.”

Secretary to the State Government Chris Ezem assured the protesters he would pass their message to the governor.
