Efcc To Pay N10m Damages To Fayose by Mamajama(m): 4:32pm On Mar 31, 2011
A Federal High Court in Ibadan yesterday ordered the payment of N10 million as damages on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for embarrassing the former governor of Ekiti State, Chief Ayodele Fayose, by sealing off his two properties (buildings) without any court order that he should forfeit the buildings to the Federal Government.
The building and residences of the former governor sealed off by EFCC are located at Plot 12, Block X and Plot 10, Block 1X, GRA Iyaganku, Ibadan.

Fayose had approached the Federal High Court to intervene in the matter via a case he instituted against the EFCC.

Ruling on the suit, Justice Jonathan Shakarho noted that the action of the EFCC officials who sealed-off the Iyaganku GRA houses of Fayose was highly condemnable, adding that it amounted to malicious embarrassment to the plantiff.

Justice Shakarho, in awarding the damages against EFCC, also restrained the anti-graft agency or its officials from issuing misleading press statements, publishing photographs and procuring the release of misleading information about the Fayose’s properties in the print media.

The trial judge ruled that the EFCC was being restrained from sealing-off Fayose’s property or infringing on his fundamental and constitutional rights in any manner.
