EFCC detains Clerk of Ondo House of Assembly, lawmaker, two others over fraud

The Clerk of Ondo State House of Assembly, Bode Aladeyelu, a lawmaker, Hon Felemugudu Bankole and two civil servants are currently being detained  by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission over fraud.

It was learnt that they have been detained since last Thursday.

The civil servants detained are : Olusegun Kayode Oyadeji and OJ. Afolabi.

An impeccable source said the lawmakers said four other members who were members of the Committee were to attend the seminar that was slated for Wednesday, 11 and Thursday 12, December 2019 which they never attended.

The seminar, it  was gathered was aimed at institutionally productivity, consciousness and excellence in service among workers and organisations in both public and private sectors 

The clerk, the deputy speaker, the committee chairman of the House Committee on Tertiary Education and two members of the committee and the Clerk were scheduled to attend the seminar.

However, it was discovered that there was no such seminar organised, thereby the money released by the state Ministry of finance amounting to N2.4million allegedly went to private pockets.

A source in the Assembly said that the alleged persons responded to the invitation of the Anti-graft agency and they were subsequently detained.
