EFCC removes seal on Fayose’s buildings in Ekiti

2 Min Read

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has removed its seal on some buildings earlier linked to a former governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose, in Ado Ekiti, the state capital.

EFCC personnel were seen on Thursday erasing the markings from the buildings with white paint.

EFCC had in November 2018, sealed the properties in different locations in the state capital, marking them with red ink with the inscription: “EFCC: Under Investigation KEEP OFF ABJ-HQ FAFI.”

The buildings include a block of two-storey commercial complex located opposite the Ekiti State Local Government Service Commission; the NTS Event Hall and Hotel, Fajuyi; Our Peoples 104.1FM, Fajuyi; and a building beside Spotless Hotel, GRA, Ado Ekiti.

Others are a twin-building behind the Government House at the GRA; a two-storey commercial building at the Okesa Market; and a petrol station.

But Fayose, through his media aide, Lere Olayinka, had accused the EFCC of sealing houses belonging to innocent people, which the anti-graft agency erroneously linked to him.

Herald Nigeria gathered that the two-storey commercial building at Okesa Market, owned by a medical doctor and former member of the State House of Assembly, Dr Samuel Omotoso, was among the sealed properties unsealed last December.

Commenting on the development, Olayinka said, “We saw it like that and do not know the rationale behind it. We have not been told anything by the EFCC.”
