The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested Olakunle Oluomo, Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly.
He was apprehended around 9 a.m. on Thursday at Lagos' Murtala Mohammed International Airport.
According to the media, he was picked up by EFCC officials to answer questions about alleged financial crimes.
The Commission's leadership has remained silent on the arrest, but a statement is expected soon.
However, an EFCC source admitted that the Ogun State Speaker had been invited several times but had failed to honor the invitations.
Oluomo was arrested and taken to the EFCC's Lagos office for questioning.
