Frozen account: Fayose knows fate December 2nd

Gov Fayose

The Federal High Court sitting in Ado-Ekiti is to rule on December 2 in an application by Governor Ayo Fayose challenging the freezing of his personal bank accounts by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)

Justice Taiwo Taiwo fixed the date after parties adopted their written addresses and other evidences.

The EFCC, on June 24, froze Fayose’s accounts, claiming they were used to launder about N1.3 billion of the N4.7 billion arms cash from ex-National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd).

Fayose sued the EFCC and Zenith Bank, alleging persecution by the anti-graft agency and breach of privacy of his account by the bank.

The governor, through his counsel argued that EFCC’s action was illegal, unconstitutional and an infringement on his rights.
