According to our reliable source, Finidi knew of the termination of his appointment through a social media messaging app.
“Yes Finidi told me that he was contacted via a WhatsApp message”.
Our source said the manner at which Finidi was laid-off was disrespectful and embarrassing to his person.
“The WhatsApp message was direct, they told him that they are rotating the team and so his services are no longer needed”.
