Information reaching, has however revealed this to be untrue, as Obasa  returned home after honouring an invitation from the EFCC.

The chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures in Nigeria, appeared before the EFCC on Thursday, October 8 as the agency continued with the investigation of some allegations against his office.

Obasa was at the EFCC office in honour of an invitation sent him by the agency.

“As a good citizen of Nigeria, a public officer and lawmaker, it was just justified that I honour an invitation by an agency trying to find out some answers relating to some questions.

“It is normal for the EFCC to invite whoever it deems should be invited. Honoring the invitation simply shows patriotism,” Obasa said in a statement released by his media office.

The Speaker added that he had returned home and was never detained by the EFCC as was being speculated.
