Rt. Hon. Olakunle Oluomo, Speaker, Ogun State House of Assembly is still in the custody of the anti-graft agency, Thursday night.

The Speaker was arrested Thursday morning at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport by officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC before being flown to Abuja to the nation’s capital for questioning hours after he was arrested and grilled by officials of the commission in Lagos.

An impeccable source within the anti-graft agency confirmed the development to our correspondent Thursday night.

As reliably gathered, the embattled lawmaker is currently in the custody of the anti-graft commission in Abuja over alleged misappropriation and embezzlement of funds.

He was said to have been on the wanted list of the commission following his failure to honour the EFCC’s invitation several times.

Oluomo and others (yet to be named), were accused of forging signatures

The EFCC National and South-West spokespersons, Mr Wilson Uwujaren and Mr Dele Oyewale, did not respond to their calls nor responded to WhatsApp and text messages from our correspondent Thursday night.

A member of the Ogun State House of Assembly representing the ruling All Progressives Congress, who spoke to our correspondent on the condition of anonymity, however, confirmed the situation.

He said, “The information you got is correct. Our speaker was arrested by officials of the EFCC earlier this morning. From what I gathered, he was alleged to have been involved in misappropriation and embezzlement of funds.”
