Nigerians Ask EFCC To Arrest Lagos Assembly Speaker, Obasa Following Allegation Of 64 Bank Accounts Linked To His BVN
At least 64 bank accounts have been discovered to be linked to the Bank Verification Number of Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, according to SaharaReporters.
SaharaReporters discovered that the accounts registered with various names, are being used to siphon public funds in Lagos.
The BVN: 2296663231, reveals that Obasa operates accounts with multiple names in Polaris Bank, Zenith Bank, Access Bank, Ecobank Nigeria, Stanbic IBTC Bank, Guaranty Trust Bank, United Bank for Africa, First City Monument Bank and Wema Bank.
To conceal his identity, the Speaker changed his name and date of birth in some of the accounts.
Nigerians have taken to Twitter to react to the development, calling on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arrest the speaker without delay.
