Just In: EFCC Grills Ex- Governor For Misappropriation Of Funds

The operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has grilled the immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi.6

Vanguard gathered that Fayemi arrived the Ilorin Zonal Command of the Commission at about 10am today (Thursday).

The former Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) was grilled by a team of investigators over allegations of misappropriation of funds to the tune of about N4billion during his administration.

Recall that in May 2023, it was reported that Fayemi, through his lawyer, Adeola Omotunde, SAN, 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 allegations of money laundering.

The spokesperson for the anti-graft agency, Wilson Uwujaren, declined comment concerning the matter.

“I can’t speak concerning that, please,” Uwujaren said.

Meanwhile, apart from Fáyẹmí, the EFCC has said it was also investigating the former governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, on allegations of corruption, award of phantom contracts and diversion of over N70bn.

The EFCC said it was compelled to make the development public following the recent attempt by the outgoing governor to cast aspersions on the integrity of the agency’s fight against corruption.

The Director, Media and Public Affairs, EFCC, Osita Nwajah, who spoke on behalf of the Chairman of the agency, Abdulrasheed Bawa, made this disclosure in May while addressing journalists at the commission’s headquarters in Jabi, Abuja.

Nwajah said, “It is intriguing that Matawalle would want to take on the role of a supervisor, who tells the EFCC whom to investigate. Is this a case of a ‘thief’ saying he must not be touched until other ‘thieves’ are caught?
