The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon Mudashiru Obasa, has said that he is a responsible legislator who has nothing to hide.

He was reacting to his invitation from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on Thursday over allegations of fraud and financial misappropriation.

Obasa in a short statement signed by him said: “The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission invited me today (Thursday). As a responsible citizen and legislator, I complied with the invitation. I do not have anything to hide. When law enforcement officers call us in their investigations, as responsible citizens, it is our duty to please them. “

A Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday granted the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, the temporary confiscation of funds linked to Mudashiru Ajayi Obasa, Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly.

The EFCC, in a motion dated August 12, 2020 and marked FHC / L / CS / 1069/2020, asked the court to issue an order ordering that funds in three bank accounts be seized in the interim.

According to the anti-theft commission, the three bank accounts are “being investigated for the crimes of conspiracy, diversion of funds, abuse of power and money laundering.”

While one of the accounts (001852963) is a household account, the other two (001852956 and 5002349821) are naira checking and savings accounts, respectively.

After hearing the request made by S. Sulieman, an attorney for the EFCC, the court ruled in favor of the commission on September 15, 2020.

Earlier on Thursday, EFCC spokesman Wilson Uwujaren confirmed that Obasa was in the agency’s office for questioning.

“He responded to an invitation from the commission this morning,” Uwujaren confirmed.
