Fayose in Trouble as EFCC Releases Properties Worth Millions he Bought with Public Funds (Photos)
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has released some photos showing properties allegedly owned by the immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose.
Spokesman for the Commission, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, sent copies of the pictures to Channels Television on Wednesday.
According to him, the properties were uncovered while the anti-graft agency was investigating the allegations of corruption against the former governor.
He alleged that Mr Fayose purchased the property with the money he purportedly received from the office of the former National Security Adviser, Retired Colonel Sambo Dasuki.
“In the course of investigating corruption allegations against ex-governor Ayodele Fayose, especially the N1.3billion which he collected from the office of the National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki, the Commission unearthed evidence that he laundered the funds into the acquisition of properties in choice locations in Abuja and Lagos,” Mr Wilson alleged.
The EFCC released the pictures a day after the former governor arrived at its head office in Abuja, in company with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and a former minister, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode, among other well-wishers.
Meanwhile, the media aide to the former governor, Mr Lere Olayinka, says his boss has since denied the allegations and insisted that he should be charged to court.
