Mr Abdulrasheed Bawa, Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday in Abuja broke down while presenting his brief address at the banquet hall of the presidential villa and was subsequently rushed out.
According to the Punch, Bawa was offering his goodwill message at the National Identity Day celebration when he suddenly stopped speaking and asked to be excused.
“Please, excuse me, I can’t continue,” he said. He walked off the stage before slumping on his chair and was eventually taken out.
Earlier, he mentioned that the EFCC was grieving the loss of a colleague.
He broke down while talking about a man the commission arrested in Ibadan, Oyo State, with 116 SIM cards.
The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Pantami, and other senior officials at the event accompanied the EFCC boss as he was taken out of the hall.
The Master of Ceremonies later announced that Bawa’s condition was stable.
“I am happy to announce to you that the EFCC Chairman is now stable,” he said.
The minister, during his speech, also said that Bawa was stable but should be put in prayers.
Meanwhile, the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, said in a statement in reaction to the development that Bawa is hale and hearty.
He said the EFCC chairman had received medical treatment after feeling unwell at the function.
“The Chairman was giving a goodwill message to the National Identity Day celebration, when he felt unwell and had to return to his seat.
 “He has since received medical attention and is due back at his desk,’’ Uwujaren said.(https://newsatlarge.ng)
