EFCC Releases Pictures Of Houses Allegedly Owned By Fayose
Former Governor of Ekiti State, Peer Aodele Fayose, has barely spent 48 hours in detention in Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and already the commission is producing enough evidence to justify reasons why they invited him in the first place. The EFCC has released some pictures of properties allegedly owned by Ayo Fayose, spokesman for the commission Mr Wilson Uwajaren who sent the pictures to media houses, claimed that the properties were uncovered when the anti-graft agency was investigating allegations of corruption against former governor Fayose.
“In the course of investigation of corruption allegations against former governor Fayose, especially the N1.3 Billion he collected from the office of the National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki, the commission unearthed evidence that he laundered the funds into acquiring choice properties in Lagos and Abuja”.
It would be recalled that Fayose reported to EFCC head office in a Abuja on Tuesday in company of Nyesom Wike, Rivers State Governor, Femi Fani-Kayode and other supporters. Meanwhile his successor Kayode Fayemi has resumed office as governor of Ekiti state.
Meanwhile the media aide to Ayodele Fayose Lere Olayinka, claims that his boss has denied all allegations, and has instead asked the anti-graft agency to charge him to court.
“”Even though he is still in EFCC custody, fayose’s spirit is still high, and his will remains very strong. the EFCC should charge him to court if they feel they have enough evidence to prosecute him, instead of subjecting him to media trial” Olayinka said.
