The Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, was rushed out of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday, after he slumped at a programme.
Mr. Bawa was delivering a goodwill message at the National Identity Day celebration when all of a sudden he stopped talking. He was talking about a man the commission arrested in Ibadan, Oyo state, with 116 SIM cards when the incident happened.

Bawa had stopped talking and covered his face with his right palm, saying, “Please, excuse me, I can’t continue.” He was assisted to his seat by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Pantami and other senior officials at the event, but the anti-graft czar slumped on his seat and was then immediately rushed out of the seat of power.
The Master of Ceremony (MC) later announced that the Bawa’s condition was stable.“I am happy to announce to you that the EFCC Chairman is now stable,” he said.
But the chairman and those who rushed him out are yet to return to the hall as at time of filing this report.
