The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), is currently interrogating former governor of Ekiti state Kayode Fayemi over an alleged laundering of N4 billion.
According to The PUNCH, sources privy to the development stated that Fayemi arrived at the EFCC facility in Ilorin, Kwara state, at about 9:40 am on Thursday, June 1, 2023.
Recall in May 2023, Fayemi, through his lawyer, Adeola Omotunde, SAN, had pleaded with the EFCC to allow him to present a book in honour of the former President, Muhammadu Buhari, on May 19, before honouring the agency’s invitation for questioning over money laundering allegations.
Confirming the development on Thursday, a source said, “Fayemi arrived at our Kwara command office at about 9:40 am today. Our operatives are currently grilling him over alleged misappropriation of N4bn.”
“I’m not sure whether he’d be released today or detained. However, he’s not the only former governor that’s currently being probed by the commission,” another source noted.
When contacted, the spokesperson for the anti-graft agency, Wilson Uwujaren, said he couldn’t speak concerning the development.
“I can’t speak concerning that, please,” Uwujaren said.
