Alleged Fraud: EFCC invites Ondo Speaker, Clerk



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has invited for questioning the Speaker, Ondo State House of Assembly, Bamidele Oleyelogun, over an allegation of fraud that allegedly rocked the Assembly recently.

Besides the speaker, it was gathered that the Clerk of the Assembly, Bode Adeyelu, and the Deputy Clerk, Amos Olowogorioye, and the Chairman, House Committee on Tertiary Education, Felemugudu Bankole, and some civil servants were invited by the anti-graft agency.

A source in the Assembly stated that the fraud was allegedly committed in 2019 when the lawmakers were said to have attended a two-day seminar organized by the National Productivity Centre, Lagos and it was later discovered that they did not attend the said seminar.

According to the source, the alleged pseudo-seminar was slated for Wednesday and Thursday, December 11 and 12, 2019.

However, the Chairman of the House Committee on Information, Gbenga Omole, denied the invitation, saying nobody was arrested or invited by the EFCC.
