The Economic and financial Commission (EFCC) Thursday morning arrested the Ogun state House of Assembly Speaker, Olakunle Oluomo.
He was picked up at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
Oluomo was at the airport to board a flight out of the country.
The anti-graft agency’s arrest of Oluomo is not unconnected with several allegations of misappropriation of state funds and other financial crimes, Blueprint gathered.
He was reportedly picked up at about 9:15am after he failed to honour several invitations from the agency to appear to answer questions on the allegations.
A source at the commission confirmed the arrest of the Ogun speaker and said he was trailed to the International Airport on a tip-off and picked up before he could board the flight.
After his arrest, Oluomo was whisked off to the Ikoyi office of the anti-graft agency where he is currently ongoing interrogation.[carousel_slide id='8496']
