Fayose Finally Regains Freedom From EFCC’s Den



Ayodele Fayose, Ekiti state’s former governor has been freed from by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), after spending 13 days in its custody.

Fayose walked into the head office of the commission in Abuja on October 16 to answer questions based on alleged money laundering and abuse of office.

He was subsequently flown to Lagos and arraigned at a federal high court in Ikoyi. The court granted him a N50 million bail on Wednesday.

He was asked to provide a surety with landed property in Lagos. His guarantor is also required to have three-year tax clearance in Lagos. He could not fulfill his bail condition immediately.

Lere Olayinka, spokesman of the former governor, said he regained freedom on Monday evening.

Writing via his Twitter handle, Olayinka said the former governor will return to court on November 16.
