The new appointment was due to an “in-house reshuffle exercise,” according to TheCable report on Monday.

A few weeks ago, reports emerged that Anamekwe was “under the radar of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over corruption allegations.”

Anamekwe was appointed as acting AGF in May mid a probe into allegations of N80 billion fraud linked to  Idris, former accountant-general of the federation.
