Bawa was giving his goodwill message at the National Identity Day celebration when he suddenly stopped speaking.
There was palpable tension as Abdulrasheed Bawa, The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), was rushed out of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday, September 16, after he slumped at a programme.
According to Daily Trust, Bawa was giving his goodwill message at the National Identity Day celebration when he suddenly stopped speaking.
He was speaking about a man the commission arrested in Ibadan, Oyo state, with 116 SIM cards when he stopped talking and covered his face with his right palm, saying “Please, excuse me, I can’t continue.”
He was later assisted to his seat by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Pantami, and other senior officials at the event.
Master of Ceremony (MC) later announced that the Bawa’s condition was stable, but those who rushed him out were yet to return to the hall when he said this.
The MC said;
“I am happy to announce to you that the EFCC Chairman is now stable.”
