The Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Olakunle Oluomo who was arrested by the Operatives of Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos, on Thursday morning has been released on bail.
It was learned that the Speaker was arrested over alleged financial misappropriation.
The Speaker and the Assembly are engulfed in a financial scandal, also involving the former Deputy Speaker, Oludare Kadiri.
While Kadiri accused the Speaker of
embezzlement of funds, the Assembly accused Kadiri of using the anti-graft agency to witch-hunt the Speaker and other legislators.
The Speaker’s media aide, Abdulgafar Adeleye, confirmed his release, saying the speaker got home on Saturday morning.
“I am there as we speak, an unplanned praise and worship was held earlier today by his supporters and the leadership of CAN in Ifo locally government,” Adeleye said.
