The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) put out pictures of homes allegedly belonging to immediate past Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose.

The popular governor was hauled in by the EFCC less than 24 hours after the expiration of his tenure and he was questioned by the anti-graft agency over allegations of corruption.

Mr Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesperson for the commission sent the photos of Channels Television.

The landed properties were allegedly bought from money received from the office of the former National Security Adviser, Retired Colonel Sambo Dasuki.

Uwujaren said: “In the course of investigating corruption allegations against ex-governor Ayodele Fayose, especially the N1.3billion which he collected from the office of the National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki, the Commission unearthed evidence that he laundered the funds into the acquisition of properties in choice locations in Abuja and Lagos,”

Speaking on his time with the EFCC, Fayose’s media aide, Lere Olayinka dared that Fayose be charged to court

“Today is his second day in EFCC custody and I can say that his spirit is high, and his will remains very strong,” Olayinka said

“The commission has started its usual lies by claiming that it discovered houses bought by Fayose with public fund,” Fayose’s aide alleged, adding, “Nigerians should recall that in 2016, operatives of this same EFCC attempted to seal up a guest house located at Gana Street, Maitama, Abuja, claiming that it belonged to Fayose. Whereas, the building belonged to a retired Army general.”
