The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) has frozen the personal account of the Governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose and many of his associates.
The governor’s personal account in Zenith Bank, Ekiti branch, was allegedly frozen on the order of the anti-graft agency , according to a source in the bank.
Fayose, who had earlier issued a counter-cheque to make withdrawal and was rejected by the bank, visited the bank located at Onigari , GRA in Ado Ekiti, describing the action as criminal and illegal.
Citing Section 308 of the 1999 constitution, Fayose said he enjoys immunity as a sitting governor , urging the federal government to fight corruption within the ambit of the law.
“I got wind of the fact that the EFCC had placed restriction order on my personal account and that of my associates . I came here today and I have been able to see it. This action shows that this government has no respect for the constitution because I enjoy immunity under Section 308.”
