The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Abdulrasheed Bawa slumped at the third National Identity Day celebration at the Banquet Hall Villa.
41-year-old Bawa who was delivering a goodwill message suddenly stopped, staggered back to his seat and laid down.
The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Professor Isa Pantami and other dignitaries held him, after sometime he was guided out of the hall.
He has been transferred to a hospital for medical attention.
It was not immediately clear whether or not the EFCC chief, who appears young and energetic, had been nurturing any illnesses before today’s incident.
