The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Olakunle Oluomo at the Muritala Muhammad Airport, Lagos State.
The Punch reported that Oluomo was arrested over allegations bordering on financial crimes.
According to a staff member at the assembly who pleaded anonymity, the speaker was picked up this morning at the Murtala Mohammed Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, by operatives following a tip-off.
The source said Oluomo was undergoing further interrogation in the custody of the anti-graft agency.
He was said to have been on the wanted list of the commission following his failure to honour EFCC invitations.
He and some others were accused of forging signatures and financial documents of the assembly.
An attempt to get confirmation from the EFCC failed as the spokesperson for Lagos zonal office, Ayo Oyewole, refused to answer the calls.
