I am Innocent Of All Charges Take Me to Court, Fayose tells EFCC


The ex-governor of Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose arrived at the EFCC office in Wuse 2, Abuja in a customised blue Tee-Shirt with the inscription “EFCC I’m here”.

He was accompanied by his lawyer Mike Ozekhome(SAN), Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode and a small crowd of supporters,wearing white T-Shirts emblazoned with “Fayose, conscience of the nation”.

Sources said Fayose would respond to issues raised by three teams of investigators.

A source added:

“He made a statement where he denied all the allegations and asked the commission to take him to court.

“So far, he has not responded to how he came about N1.3billion and $5.377million from ONSA. He has more issues to clarify; we are going to detain him.”

“There are three teams handling the allegations against the former governor. There is a special team managing his suspended trial because he had immunity as a governor; a separate team for the N4.685b ONSA fraud and the third panel probes his just completed tenure.

“Definitely, we are going to detain Fayose because he has a lot of issues to clarify.”

The agency’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren said “The ex-governor is still undergoing interrogation as at last night.”

N4.6b slush funds: EFCC detains Fayose

After some drama at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) headquarters in Abuja, former Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose was taken into custody yesterday.

The anti-graft agency is questioning Fayose over the ongoing probe of the alleged diversion N4.685billion by the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

The ex-governor is being grilled over the N1.3billion and $5.377million allegedly traced to him from the N4.6 billion slush funds.

The ex-governor arrived at the EFCC office in Wuse 2, Abuja in a customised blue Tee-Shirt with the inscription “EFCC I’m here”.

He was accompanied by his lawyer Mike Ozekhome(SAN),Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike and a former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode . There was also a small crowd of supporters, some of them wearing white T-Shirts emblazoned with “Fayose, conscience of the nation”

Fayose came in a black Lexus SUV. He was carrying a bag containing his dresses.

The crowd was shouting Fayose’s nickname, “Oshoko” and carrying placards in praise of the ex-governor. Fayose said: “I am here in line with my promise that I will be here on the 16th of October and, like I told the EFCC, they should await my arrival. This morning, they have been to my house; they cordoned off the street which I believe was unnecessary and unwarranted.



“I have promised to report; I am here now. I will be able to respond to all allegations.”

As he was going into custody, Fayose told reporters: “Nobody should be afraid of the EFCC, especially when you have nothing to hide. I have remained courageous for Nigerians and I will always be with Nigerians.”

He was quoted as telling detectives that he needed to rest, having worked hard for four years.

He also reportedly told his interrogators: “I deny all the allegations, take me to court.”

Sources said Fayose would respond to issues raised by three teams of investigators.

A source added: “He made a statement where he denied all the allegations and asked the commission to take him to court.

“So far, he has not responded to how he came about N1.3billion and $5.377million from ONSA. He has more issues to clarify; we are going to detain him.”

The source added: “There are three teams handling the allegations against the former governor. There is a special team managing his suspended trial because he had immunity as a governor; a separate team for the N4.685b ONSA fraud and the third panel probes his just completed tenure.

“Definitely, we are going to detain Fayose because he has a lot of issues to clarify.”

Head of Media and Publicity of the EFCC Wilson Uwujaren merely said: “The ex-governor is undergoing interrogation.”

Speaking before Fayose entered the EFCC’s office, Wike said: “You can see that our brother has come to see the EFCC. He wrote a letter to the EFCC that he will submit himself on the 16th of October. He is going in hale and hearty; I believe the EFCC should know.

“So let Nigerians know that he came by himself to the EFCC without anybody harassing him, so that’s why I brought him here.”

Fani-Kayode said: “We came to stand with our friend. He is going in hale and hearty; we trust God he will come out this way.”

Ozekhome said Nigerians were “not in the Hobbesian state which was brutish”. “This is a country governed by law and not the rule of the thumb. There should be respect for the constitution,” the lawyer said.

That's the way to go. They should take him to court, If they have built up a case and not this their usual tactics of rabble rousing.

Nigerians would love to see Fayose being tried for his alleged sins alongside Babachir Lawal, as its taking forever for the grass cutter thief to be tried.

I care less about Fayose and his travails, but every out going political office holder should be subjected to this treatment and not only those who were vocal about their dislike for the president. Enough with the
selective anti corruption fight sad

Of course he will have his days in court. His strategy of working with the brain of the gullible will not work on us all.

To those suffering from selective amnesia, Obanikoro confessed that Fayose received millions of dollars from Dasukigate Arms fund to rig Ekiti election in 2014. Dasuki is in for it, Obanikoro has entered into plea bargaining and refunding his own share of the loot, many others have ongoing cases in court. Surely, Fayose's own can't be different just because he knows how to shout with the intention of diverting attention to distract from the real issue.

As usual, the IPOBites are the people who will come to his defense. Pathetic lot.

He has denied all allegations, so EFCC should take him to the judiciary so that an independent audit can be conducted. It is not wise to detain any accused who is not a flight risk, and in this case he has submitted himself voluntarily to EFCC. All they have to do, if this is not politically motivated is to make an entry and get their prosecutor to get a date in court.

The law has no emotion, so EFCC should not be used by Politicians to subjugate the rights and privileges of others.

If he is found guilty at the court, the court has a prerogative to make a judgement and can also temper justice with mercy. It is how it is done in a democracy of the white race.

But will Africa leave her mundane neanderthal ways and practice democracy as it is done by those they borrow from ?

Time shall tell.

Why is EFCC silent on Ganduje , I hate APC, APC as a party is a party of evil doers, anybody that doesn't see how bad Buhari and APC leaders are managing this country ,selective fighting of corruption is a stupid, bastard, enemy of our country and a low life person.

I unfriend any of my Facebook friend praising Buhari led administration.

Why wont he say he is innocent when he knows they 're afraid of opposition and will still respect him as an exgovernor instead of them to treat him the way they treat common criminals.
They should torture him and put live electric current between his legs. The sight of it barking aggressively close to his joystick will make him spill all the beans he has eaten and those he has not.
