An online publication claimed in a study that Ehamufu, Anambra State, contained a gold deposit estimated to be over 20 million tonnes and valued at over $900 trillion.

The report further claimed that at the conclusion of a meeting of the forum, Soludo briefed journalists on the development in his capacity as the group’s chairman.

But reacting to the claims, the governor in a press statement through his Press Secretary, Mr Christian Aburime, on Friday, described the report as fake and misleading.

The statement was titled ‘Purported discovery of gold reserve of over 20 million tonnes worth over $900tn in Ehamufu, Anambra State.

The governor advised the general public to completely disregard the report and every material therein as a fake news item, saying the state government has specific channels where it churns out information to the public.

The statement read, “The attention of the government of Anambra State has been drawn to a fictitious and fallacious write-up with the above heading which has been making the rounds on some social media handles.

“Ehamufu is not in Anambra State. Governor Chukwuma Soludo is not the Chairman of the South East Governors’ forum, nor did he brief newsmen of any meeting held by the forum or phantom discovery of gold reserves in Ehamufu, Anambra State, as allegedly claimed by the writer(s).

“The entire news story including every statement or quotation allegedly attributed to Soludo are mere falsehoods without an iota of truth.

“The general public is hereby advised to discountenance and disregard these claims as a figment of the writer’s imagination. The entire news item remains a mischievously cooked-up story with the clear intention to mislead the general public.
