Why Fayose’s Account Was Frozen – EFCC

Yesterday, June 20, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) froze the personal account of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state.

The commission stated that it was investigating suspicious movements in Governor Ayodele Fayose’s account.

The EFCC further stated that Governor Ayo Fayose’s claim that he cannot be investigated because of immunity currently being enjoyed by him is false.

The commission said that the immunity being enjoyed by any governor does not prevent the commission from investigating suspicious movements of money into his accounts.

The Spokesman for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren disclosed that the anti-graft agency has the right to investigate any governor whose account is being used to move funds.

“Immunity does not prevent EFCC from investigating suspicious accounts of those enjoying immunity and Fayose cannot be an exception,” Uwujaren said.
