A Lagos Federal High Court has ordered a temporary freezing of three bank accounts belonging to the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa.

The order followed an ex parte motion filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission which is investigating Obasa for alleged fraud.

According to the court papers obtained by Sahara Reporters marked FHC/L/CS/1069/2020, Obasa’s three accounts with Standard Chartered Bank are under restriction pending the conclusion of the substantive probe.

They include: a United States Dollar account marked 001852963; a current account with number 0018552956 and a savings account with number – 5002349821.

The order which was signed by the court’s registrar, Adebimpe Oni, was made on September 15, 2020.

The anti-graft agency said it filed the matter “Pursuant to section 44 (2) (K) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) and section 26, 29, and 34 (1) of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (Establishment) Act, 2004, and under the inherent jurisdiction of this honourable court.”

Obasa has been in the custody of the EFCC responding to allegations of fraud.‎

Spokesman of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed Obasa’s invitation on Thursday.

The two-time Speaker of the House, has been facing several allegations of corruption.
