An update on Fayose’s interrogation yesterday at EFCC office in Abuja, has been shared by the anti-graft agency.
Recall that we reported that the former Governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose, reported at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja on Tuesday, in accordance with his promise of honoring their invitation.
Speaking to NAN, Head, Media and Publicity of the EFCC, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, who was asked why Fayose was still detained for over 24 hours, said;
“We are still within range. We are not keeping him but interrogating him.”
On arrival at EFCC’s office yesterday, Ayodele Fayose said;
“I am here in line with my promise that I will be here on the 16th of October.
“And, like I said to EFCC, they should await my arrival. They had been to my house; they cordoned off my street which I feel personally was unnecessary. It is unwarranted.
“I had led Ekiti, and the best I could give, I have given. Therefore, every question, whatever they need to ask, I will be able to respond appropriately.”
He had in a letter to the EFCC sometime ago, said his term of office “to which I enjoy immunity against investigation and prosecution shall lapse by Monday, Oct. 15, 2018.
“As a responsible citizen of our great country, who believes in the rule of law, I wish to inform you of my decision to make myself available in your office on Tuesday, 16th October, 2018 at 1pm.
“It is to clarify issues or answer questions within my knowledge.’’
