Court Approves Freezing of Gov. Fayose’s Account by EFCC
The Court of Appeal sitting in Ado Ekiti on Thursday, allowed the freezing of the account of the Ekiti state governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
In a lead judgment Thursday, the court Okayed the appeal filed by the EFCC against the judgment of Justice Taiwo. O Taiwo of Federal High Court, who in a 2016 ruling described Fayose as “a genuinely deprived person who rushed to the court to seek constitutional protection”.
But the lead judge to the three-man appeal court panel, Honourable Justice J.S Ikeyegha directed the freezing of the account of Mr. Fayose forthwith.
Recalled that upon the judgment of the lower court, the governor withdrew the sum of N5m and transferred the sum of N75m to his lawyer, Mr. Mike Ozekhome SAN.
