The Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has denied the news of the discovery of a large deposit of gold in a part of the state.

An online medium had through a report alleged that the discovery of gold reserve estimated over 20 million tonnes and worth over $900tn in Ehamufu, Anambra State.

The report also alleged that Soludo, in his capacity as the chairman of the South East Governors’ forum, briefed journalists at the end of a meeting of the forum on the development.

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 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.
