Fayose To Spend Weekend In EFCC Custody After Struggling To Meet Bail Condition

News

Former Ekiti Governor will not be leaving EFCC custody until Monday after being granted bail since Wednesday by a court of law

Immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose will spend his weekend in Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) custody even after meeting his bail condition.

The information was made public in a tweet by his media aide, Lere Olayinka on Friday.

Olayinka said the ex-governor has filed and verified all necessary documents for his bail.

The tweet read: “On Governor Fayose bail, as at 2pm today, all necessary documents were filed before the court and verified.

“Hopefully, he should be out of custody by Monday. We thank Nigerians for their support.”

Recall that Fayose was on Wednesday granted N50m bail after being arraigned before Justice Mojisola Olatoregun by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on charges of corruption.

The judge asked him to provide a surety who must have landed property in Lagos. The guarantor is also required to have three-year tax clearance in Lagos.

Fayose is facing an 11-count charge bordering on receiving illegal monies to fund his 2014 governorship campaign in Ekiti State, among other allegations of benefiting from proceeds of money laundering.
