The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has reportedly arrested the Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Olakunle Oluomo at the Muritala Muhammad Airport, Lagos State.
Reports say that the lawmaker was reportedly arrested over allegations of offences bordering on financial crimes, forging signatures and financial documents of the assembly.
A Staff at the assembly who spoke to newsmen but pleaded anonymity said the speaker was allegedly picked up today at the Murtala Mohammed Airport by operatives following a tip-off. The source added Oluomo was undergoing further grilling in the custody of the agency.
It was gathered that the House of Assembly member was said to have been on the wanted list of the commission following his failure to honour EFCC’s invitation several times.
Meanwhile, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, as at the time of filing this report, is yet to react to the report of his arrest.
