I Was At The EFCC To Honour Their Invitation and Nothing More – Lagos Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa.


The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa was neither arrested nor detained by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), as the news going rounds that he was detained is not true.

Obasa was said to have appeared before the EFCC on Thursday, October 8 as the agency continued with it's investigation of some allegations against his office and he had to honour the invitation sent to him by the agency. 

According to him, "As a good citizen of Nigeria, a public officer and lawmaker, it was just justified that I honour an invitation by an agency trying to find out some answers relating to some questions as it is normal for the EFCC to invite whoever it deems should be invited, so, honoring the invitation simply shows patriotism," Obasa said.

The Speaker added that he had returned home and was never detained by the EFCC as was already being speculated in some session of the media.
