Court Rejects Fayose’s Bid To Stop EFCC Probe

An Ekiti State High Court in Ado Ekiti today declined to grant an ex parte order sought by Governor Ayodele Fayose to restrain the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) from investigating the financial records of the state government.

Justice Cornelius Akintayo refused to grant the order on grounds that the 17th-19th defendants – EFCC, Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and Department of State Services (DSS) should be put on notice to prepare for their defence at the court.

The judge consequently adjourned the suit to August 23 and ordered all parties in the matter to appear before him when the motion notice would be heard.

The suit was filed by Ekiti State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Owoseni Ajayi, to stop the impending investigation of the state government’s accounts by the EFCC.

Another relief sought by the plaintiffs was an order stopping the arrest of the Commissioner for Finance, Accountant General and the managers of the affected banks.
