The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said its Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, is fine and healthy after losing consciousness at a public event on Thursday.
He was subsequently assisted to his seat by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, and other senior officials at the event and was reportedly rushed to the hospital.
But according to a statement issued by Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, his principal has received medical attention and is back on his feet.
The statement read: “The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Commission, EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa is hale and hearty. This clarification became necessary following an incident today September 16, 2021, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja where he was giving a goodwill message to the National Identity Day celebration, felt unwell and had to return to his seat.
“He has since received medical attention and is due back at his desk.”
