Court rejects Fayose’s request to stop EFCC probe


An Ekiti State High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti has declined an ex parte order sought by the State Government to restrain the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission from investigating the finances of the state.
The motion was filed by the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Owoseni Ajayi, to stop the anti-graft agency from investigating the accounts of the state government.
He also sought an order stopping the arrest of the Commissioner for Finance, Accountant General and the managers of the affected banks.

The EFCC had frozen the governor’s accounts with Zenith Bank and some of his associates after allegedly tracing N4.7bn from the Office of the National Security Adviser under Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.) to them and those of two sons of a former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro.
Justice Cornelius Akintayo ordered the applicant to put the defendants in the case on notice to prepare for defence.
He consequently adjourned the suit till August 23 when parties are expected to appear before him to argue the Motion on Notice.
