Ogun state house of assembly speaker, Olakunle Oluomo, who was remanded may be arraigned this week by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

He had been alleged of financial crimes, a source within the anti-graft agency confirmed on Friday.

According to Punch news, a source noted that the EFCC is determined to leave no stone unturned.

The source said, “We are leaving no stone unturned concerning Oluomo’s matter. He will be arraigned in court in Lagos State on Monday or later in the week, as we are currently preparing charges against him.

“We are arraigning him in Lagos because it is a jurisdiction matter. Some highly placed personalities are doing everything to frustrate his arraignment, but he is expected to explain or defend himself in court on Monday.”

Oluomo was arrested by officials of the EFCC at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos last Thursday and flown to Abuja.

However, he was granted bail on the condition that he returns on Monday (today) with both the assembly clerk and the accountant.

The speaker has been on the wanted list of the commission following his failure to honor the EFCC’s invitation many times.

Oluomo and others were accused of forging signatures and financial documents belonging to the state assembly.
