The chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Abdulrasheed Bawa slumped during an event at the Banquet Hall of the State House at the Presidential Villa.

Bawa was addressing dignitaries at the event organised by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) meant for the celebration of National Identity day before the incident.

As soon as he took the podium, he said his address would have been a long one given the importance of National Digital Identity but he would cut it short because of the death of a senior EFCC staff in Ibadan.

He said he would be heading to Ibadan immediately after the event in Abuja.

Bawa began by saying National Identity was “significant for instance there was a young man arrested in Ibadan with 116 SIM cards…”

At this point, Bawa became emotional and sobbed before stating “let me stop here”.

On descending from the podium, he broke down and was rushed out of the auditorium.

The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof Isa Pantami and other dignitaries stopped the event and rushed to assist him.

The Master of ceremony at the event later announced that “the EFCC Chairman has stabilised and he is doing ok “.
