Fayose Summits Self To EFCC In “EFCC am Here” Shirt


A mild drama ensued outside the Tunde Idiagbon House, former head office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission when operatives of the EFCC attempted to bar a former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, from accompanying former Governor Ayodele Fayose into the premises.
Fayose had earlier notified the EFCC that he will make himself available immediately his tenure expires.
He was on Tuesday accompanied to the anti-graft agency’s office by Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers state, and Femi Fani-Kayode, former minister of aviation.
Wearing a black t-shirt with the inscription “EFCC, I’m here”, the ex-governor 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.
“This morning, they have been to my house which I think it’s unnecessary.”
Also speaking, Wike said: “He wrote to the EFCC that he will submit himself on the 16th of October.
“So let Nigerians know that he came by himself to EFCC without anybody harassing him, so that’s why I brought him here.”
Fayose was seen with a bag filled with his clothes.
A day after the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti, the EFCC hinted that it would investigate the integrated poultry project of Fayose’s administration.
The anti-graft agency filed the N1.3bn fraud case against Fayose in 2005.
The case led to his impeachment from office in 2006.
“The parri is over; The cloak of immunity torn apart, and the staff broken. #Ekiti Integrated Poultry Project/Biological Concepts Limited N1.3bn fraud case file dusted off the shelves. See you soon,” EFCC tweeted on its official handle.
The tweet was later deleted by the anti-graft agency.
Fani-Kayode, who obtained an LL.B from the School of Oriental and African Studies and a Masters degree from Cambridge University, noted that he was a lawyer and had practised in Nigeria.
After challenging the security officials with his credentials, he was allowed in.
While going in, Fani-Kayode joked with the EFCC operatives that he ought to be allowed unto the premises at any time having spent 90 non-consecutive days in the custody of the commission in 2016.
“I am a regular customer here. You should know me by now,” he joked.
Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), who has been representing Fayose in court since his recent case with the EFCC began, also took three lawyers from his chambers into the EFCC before leaving.
