Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose got left kickbacks from contractors and lavished the cash on mansions, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has alleged.
The Governor’s N1.299 billion bank account has been frozen. He is in court contesting the order, which the EFCC has defended. The case is coming up September 30 at the Federal High Court, Ado-Ekiti.
The agency did not state how much kickback Fayose got, but it named some contractors who allegedly paid him. Besides, said the EFCC, the properties were acquired in other peoples’ name, among them the Governor’s sister, the EFCC said.
