The EFCC boss was brought to the hospital and diagnosed with dehydration by medics.


“While offering my goodwill message during the function organized by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), there was a form of dizziness on me and I had to withdraw myself from the stage,” Bawa said on Channels Television’s Politics Today.


And, of course, I immediately rushed to the hospital, where the doctors confirmed that everything about me is fine, except that I’m a little dehydrated and need to drink a lot of water.


I went back to work right after I got out of the hospital, and now I’m back at home.”
