The 41-year-old was giving his goodwill message on Thursday at the National Identity Day celebration when he suddenly became emotional, attributing his demeanour to the death of a member of staff of the commission.

“Please, excuse me, I can’t continue,” Bawa had said before he walked off the stage and slumped on his chair as other attendees rushed to help him.

Bawa was then rushed out of the hall by the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Mr. Isa Pantami, who later returned and said the EFCC boss was now in a stable condition.

Pantami later told journalists that the reason why Bawa collapsed in Aso Rock was “due to pressure and work burden.”

The minister urged Nigerians to pray for Bawa who was grieving the loss of a colleague, stressing that he has regained consciousness.
