Abdulrasheed Bawa, EFCC Chairman slumps at Aso Rock


The Chairman of Economic and Financial Crime Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa , reportedly rushed out of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday September 16, after slumping at an event. 

According to Daily Trust who reported the news, the anti-graft agency’s chairman was giving a goodwill message at the National Identity Day celebration, when he suddenly stopped speaking.

Bawa was allegedly talking about a man the commission arrested in Ibadan, Oyo state, with 116 SIM cards, when he stopped talking and covered his face with his right palm, saying “Please, excuse me, I can’t continue.”

Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Pantami and other senior officials at the event helped him get to his seat, but he slumped when he got to his seat and was rushed out of the state house. 

Master of Ceremony (MC) later announced that the Bawa’s condition was stable, but those who rushed him out were yet to return to the hall when he said this.

The MC said; 

“I am happy to announce to you that the EFCC Chairman is now stable.”
