The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission apprehended Olakunle Oluomo, Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, at Muritala Muhammad Airport in Lagos State.
According to our source, Oluomo was arrested on allegations of financial crimes.
According to a staff member at the assembly who requested anonymity, the speaker was picked up this morning at Murtala Mohammed Airport in Ikeja, Lagos, by operatives acting on a tip. According to the source, Oluomo is being questioned further in the agency’s custody.
He was said to be on the commission’s wanted list after repeatedly failing to honor EFCC invitations.
He and others were accused of forging assembly signatures and financial documents.
An attempt to obtain confirmation from the EFCC was unsuccessful because the spokesperson for the Lagos zonal office, Ayo Oyewole, refused to answer the phone.
