The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is grilling the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, over allegations of fraud.
IBrandTV gathered that Obasa appeared at the Lagos zone office of the commission on Thursday on invitation by the agency.
He had earlier appeared before the House panel of enquiry on allegations which he had denied.
While Obasa denied most of the allegations, he admitted that N80 million as estacode was approved for the training of the wives of 20 lawmakers in Dubai.
“We gave N4m to each of the participants for air tickets, hotels, feedings and local travel. Air ticket to Dubai alone costs about N2m. Some of these allegations were raised for a crusade to get the Speaker out of office.
“The House of Assembly is above common standard of excellence and we have to train people, and this comes at a cost. Learning is not cheap and I have never collected N80m for estacode at a go before,” he said.
