The Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa slumped at an event on Thursday in Aso Rock before he was was rushed out.
Bawa who was giving his goodwill message at the National Identity Day celebration suddenly stopped speaking while he was recounting an operation of a man the commission arrested in Ibadan, Oyo state, with 116 SIM cards when the incident happened.
He allegedly stopped talking and covered his face with his right palm, saying, “Please, excuse me, I can’t continue.”
He was later assisted to his seat by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Pantami and other senior officials at the event, but the anti-graft czar collapsed on his seat and he was immediately rushed out of the seat of power.
The Master of Ceremony (MC) later announced that the Bawa’s condition was stable.
“I am happy to announce to you that the EFCC Chairman is now stable,” he said.
But the chairman and those who rushed him out are yet to return to the hall as at time of filing this report.
