BREAKING: EFCC Chairman Slumps

The chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Abdulrasheed Bawa on Thursday unfortunately slumped during an event at the Banquet Hall of the State House at the Presidential Villa.

He was seen addressing notable persons at the event held by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) meant for the celebration of National Identity day before the incident.

Immediately he took the podium, he said his address would have been a long one given the importance of National Digital Identity but he would cut it short because of the death of a senior EFCC staff in Ibadan.

He said he would be heading to Ibadan immediately after the event in Abuja.

Bawa began by saying National Identity was “significant for instance there was a young man arrested in Ibadan with 116 SIM cards…”

It was not long before Bawa became emotional and sobbed before stating “let me stop here”.

On descending from the podium, he broke down and was rushed out of the auditorium.

The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof Isa Pantami and other dignitaries stopped the event and rushed to assist him.

The Master of ceremony at the event later announced that “the EFCC Chairman has stabilised and he is doing ok “ hinting at his steady recovery.

More on this Shortly.
