Governor Olusegun Mimiko has faulted the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) following the restriction placed on Fayose’s account.
Mimiko said the EFCC had no power to interfere with the account of a sitting governor.
He added that the action would not find comfort with the position of Section 308 of the Nigerian Constitution.
“What has happened is a blatant and violent infraction on the provision of the Constitution and our democracy, ” Mr. Mimiko said.
“It is an attempt to subvert the constitution and it is fascist. The intention is to achieve a penal sanction without going through the due criminal procedure and criminal proceedings.”
“What they have done now is to distract the Governor of Ekiti and this is not good for our democracy, ” he added.
