The Lagos Division of the Federal High Court on Thursday ordered a temporary confiscation of three bank accounts run by Lagos House of Assembly Speaker Mudashiru Obasa.
Obasa, from Agege, faces multiple claims of fraud to the tune of N9 billion. He has consistently denied all charges, dismissing them as the antics of his political detractors.
The three accounts, two denominated in naira while the third holds U.S. dollar deposits, were frozen based on a request of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Obasa, according to PeopleGazette, was called in for questioning earlier today by the EFCC.
The freeze on his account came hours after he arrived at the EFCC field office in Lagos.
