EFCC Transfers Arrested Ogun Speaker To Abuja



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has transferred the Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Olakunle Oluomo, who was arrested earlier today to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, for questioning.

A reliable source disclosed that Oluomo is onboard an Abuja-bound aircraft over alleged misappropriation and embezzlement of funds

Recall that the EFCC had on Thursday morning arrested the Speaker at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

The source added that Oluomo had earlier failed to honour official invites by the anti-graft commission.

EFCC is yet to release an official statement on the development.

A member of the Ogun State House of Assembly representing the ruling All Progressives Congress, who spoke to our correspondent on the condition of anonymity, however, confirmed the situation.

He said, “The information you got is correct. Our speaker was arrested by operatives of the EFCC earlier this morning. From what I gathered, he was alleged to have been involved in misappropriation and embezzlement of funds.”
