The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has said its chairman, ABDULRASHEED BAWA, is hale and hearty.
BAWA was speaking on the importance of digital identification in commemoration of the National Identity Day when he suddenly became emotional, attributing his demeanor to the death of a member of staff of the commission.
Shortly after, he said he couldn’t continue his speech and then walked off the stage, sat in his chair and slumped.
A statement by the commission’s Head of Media and Publicity, WILSON UWUJAREN, said the clarification became necessary following the incident.
The statement said that BAWA had since received medical attention and is due back at his desk.
