The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has declared that the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has no immunity clause against investigation by the commission.
Spokesman of the anti-graft agency, Wilson Uwajaren made the assertion while reacting to the action of the commission to freeze Fayose’s bank account.
Recall that Fayose had on Monday revealed how he was unable to conduct financial transactions at a Zenith Bank branch in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital because the anti-graft agency had frozen his account.
But confirming the action, Uwajaren said, “It is true that we have frozen Governor Fayose’s account in connection with an ongoing investigation. We will soon release the details of our findings to the public.
“We froze the account because Fayose has no immunity against investigation.”
