The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said it is ready to look into the corruption allegations leveled against Speaker of the Lagos State House Of Assembly, Honorable Mudashiru Obasa.
Recall, Obasa had been accused by SaharaReporters of embezzling public funds, abusing his office, having multiple bank accounts among others.
He was also accused of using his office to misappropriate funds and allocate contracts to himself through third party sources, as well as other acquaintances.
Although, the state house of assembly had cleared the him of the corruption allegations, saying the allegations were untrue.
Speaking on Tuesday at the commission’s office in Lagos, Mohammed Rabo, zonal head of the EFCC, said the anti-graft agency will give the petition against Obasa the attention it deserves.
Members of the Civil Society Network Against Corruption (CISNAC) had protested at the commission’s office while a petition was also submitted to the agency.
“We will give it the required attention. We have our process here. This is the first process. You have submitted. We will go through it. I assure you we will give it the attention it requires. Always do your things within the ambit of the law.” Rabo said.
Sina Odugbemi, a programme officer at CISNAC, said the Lagos state house of assembly cannot be a judge in its own affairs.
He said the EFCC must investigate the speaker for the public to know the truth about the allegations.
