Fayose kicks as EFCC re-freezes account

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State says he will challenge the re-freezing of his account by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at the Ado-Ekiti branch of Zenith Bank Plc.

Fayose, who decried what he described as the brazen disregard to court orders, said the action of the anti-graft agency was an impunity taken too far and it would not go unchallenged. The governor, who spoke at the weekend during a dinner with journalists, said he was at the bank’s branch in Ado-Ekiti but was prevented from withdrawing money from his account despite the ruling of a Federal High Court which threw out the EFCC’s application for a stay of execution of its earlier judgment that his account at Zenith Bank be defrozen.
