Why EFCC Froze Accounts Of Lagos Assembly Speaker, Obasa *** The Speaker Speaks – Naijanewsdirect

Three accounts that belong to Lagos State House of Assembly Speaker, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa has been frozen by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Report has it that the EFCC obtained a court order to freeze these bank accounts because the accounts are being investigated for money laundering, diversion of funds and conspiracy.

The three Standard Chartered Bank accounts will be frozen until the investigation is over. The court order was granted by the Federal High Court in Lagos on September 15, 2020.

Recent reports in the media revealed how he operates different bank accounts using different names to conceal his identity.

However, Hon. Obasa was invited by the EFCC for questioning on Thursday 8th, October, 2020, and news made the rounds that he was detained.

Reacting to claims by some news media that he was detained by the EFCC, Obasa said,

“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.

“It is normal for the EFCC to invite whoever it deems should be invited. Honoring the invitation simply shows patriotism,” Obasa said in a statement released by his media office.

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


Below are the documents and accounts frozen by EFCC:
