EFCC and Fayose

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has blocked the account of Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, operates with Zenith Bank Plc.

An EFCC source confirmed the development to PREMIUM TIMES.

The governor, who spoke to reporters in Ado-Ekiti on Monday at the premises of the bank, said he had information that the accounts of some of his associates were also affected.

According to a press release by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Idowu Adelusi, the governor accused some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and a prominent lawyer from the state of being the brains behind the action.

While condemning the action, Mr. Fayose said under the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, especially th‎e provisions contained in Section 308, he enjoyed immunity and wondered why his personal properties should become the targets of the Federal Government and its agencies under the guise of fighting corruption.

"Section 308 of the 1999 Constitution gives me immunity just like the President. I wouldn't know why these people are intolerant of others and in a haste. Let them wait till 2018 when I will end my tenure for them to do their investigati‎on. The other time the EFCC accused me of embezzling N1.2 billion poultry project fund, I was the one who voluntarily reported myself to the EFCC.
