The chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, has reportedly slumped and was rushed out of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday.

Reports said the EFCC chief slumped during a programme.

Bawa was giving his goodwill message at the National Identity Day celebration when he suddenly stopped speaking, according to Daily Trust, .

He was speaking about a man the commission arrested in Ibadan, Oyo state, with 116 SIM cards when the incident happened.

Bawa was later assisted to his seat by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Pantami, and other senior officials at the event.

Shortly thereafter, he was rushed out of the presidential villa to a yet to be named hospital.
