- Fayose’s Zenith Bank Account With N500Million Frozen By The EFCC Over N1.2Billion He Received From Dasuki
- EFCC Says Immunity Can’t Stop Money Laundering Investigation
Yesterday the EFCC blocked Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose from accessing his bank account at Zenith bank.
Few hours later, Fayose released an official statement to say that the agency has no right to interfere with his bank account because as a serving governor, he is entitled to enjoy immunity.
The agency immediately fired back, saying that immunity doesn’t prevent EFCC from investigating a money laundering case.
The agency alleged that Fayose’s account is being used to move funds and that immunity can’t prevent them from investigating suspicious movement of funds.
A source at the agency alleged that Fayose’s Zenith bank account transactions exposed the N1.2billion NSA fund he collected from Dasuki in 2014.
The source further alleged that Fayose’s frozen Zenith bank account has N500 million balance.
