The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested the Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Olakunle Oluomo.
On Thursday at nine in the morning, he was taken into custody at Lagos’s Murtala Mohammed International Airport.
According to sources, EFCC agents who called Channels Television’s judiciary correspondent Shola Soyele said the development was to ask Oluomo questions about possible financial offences.
The Commission’s top officials have remained silent over the arrest, but they are soon expected to make a comment.
But a source within the Commission admitted that the Ogun State Speaker had been invited by the EFCC several times but failed to honour the invitations.
Oluomo has been taken to the EFCC’s Lagos office for further questioning
