It has been reported that the Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, broke down while presenting his brief address and was rushed out of the banquet hall at the presidential villa on Thursday.
According to reports, Bawa was presenting his goodwill message at the National Identity Day celebration, when he suddenly stopped speaking and asked to be excused.
Bawa reportedly stated that, “Please, excuse me, I can’t continue,” after which he walked off the stage before slumping on his chair and was eventually taken out.
Further reports revealed that he broke down while talking about a man the commission arrested in Ibadan, Oyo State, with 116 SIM cards.
However, it was reported that the Master of Ceremonies at the event later announced that Bawa’s condition was stable.
