EFCC Arraigns Impeached Ogun Speaker, Oluomo, Over N2.5bn Fraud

The impeached Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, EFCC Arraigns Impeached Ogun Speaker, Oluomo, Over N2.5bn Fraudseems to be literally swimmming in more troubled waters as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday docked him in a Federal High Court sitting in Oke Mosan, Abeokuta.

The former Speaker was docked alongside two other officers of the state Assembly, Dayo Samuel and Adeyemo Adedeji.

Oluomo and the duo were dragged before EFCC, over alleged misappropriation of N2.5 billion.

He allegedly committed the fraud while serving as the Speaker of the Assembly in 2022.

It would be recalled that 18 out of 26 lawmakers signed for his impeachment over allegations bordering on high-handedness, gross misconduct, arrogance, poor leadership style, lack of focus and transparency, and pitching members against themselves.

This former Speaker has, however, vowed to fight back as he told journalists that he had instituted a legal battle against the members of the Assembly.

On Monday, shortly after the trio entered the dock, the court discovered that the counsel to the EFCC was absent.

The Judge, Justice O.O Okeke, however, adjourned the case to 29th February and 1st of March.
