The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has detained Ondo Assembly clerk, Bode Aladeyelu and two other civil servants.
This is coming after it was alleged that those who collected N2.4million which was released to attend a two-day seminar organised by National Productivity Centre, Lagos, never attended the program.
A staff of the assembly who spoke to The Nation, said;
“It is true. The clerk of the House and Hon. Felemu Gudu Bankole along with two civil servants in the Assembly are there in the EFCC’s custody. They were detained there.
“Based on that invitation, all of them went there and they were detained last Thursday. I think the EFCC must have commenced their investigation into their matter.”
Spokesman of the Assembly Gbenga Omole declined to comment on the matter. He said;
“I am not answering any question, I am going to address the press tomorrow, (Monday).”
