Arrested Ogun Speaker Spends Second Day In EFCC Detention, Flown To Abuja


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

As reliably gathered, the embattled lawmaker is spending his second day with the graft agency over alleged misappropriation and embezzlement of funds

An impeccable source within the anti-graft agency confirmed the development to journalists on Thursday.

CKN  News had earlier reported that the EFCC arrested the Ogun Speaker at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, in the early hours of Thursday at about 09:00 am.

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

The EFCC  spokespersons, Mr Wilson Uwujaren and Mr Dele Oyewale, did not take their calls nor responded to WhatsApp and text messages from our correspondent on Thursday.

A member of the Ogun State House of Assembly representing the ruling All Progressives Congress, who spoke 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.”
