EFCC Arraigns Ogun Speaker, Clerk, Finance Director To Court Over N2.5BN Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned the speaker of the Ogun State House Assembly, Rt. Hon. Olakunle Oluomo, before a Federal High Court in Lagos over alleged N2.5 billion fraud.

Oluomo was arraigned alongside the director of finance of the state assembly, Oladayo Samuel, as well as the Clerk of the house, Adeyemo Taiwo.

The defendants were arraigned at about 10am on Tuesday before Justice Daniel Osiagor on 11 counts of conspiracy, forgery, and stealing.

They, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Mr. Oluomo was arraigned before Justice Osiagor barely a week after he was arrested by the anti-graft agency on corruption allegations.

He was intercepted by EFCC operatives on Thursday last week at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos, although the leadership of the commission initially kept mum over the development.

The Speaker was said to have been released a day after he was arrested but asked to report back the following Monday.

Upon his return to the EFCC office, he was reportedly detained again.
