The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] has expressed indignation over the order by Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court, Ado Ekiti, Ekiti state asking it to defreeze the accounts of Governor Ayo Fayose.

Elombah.com had reported how Ekiti Court had ordered EFCC to de-freeze the Governor’s accounts in Zenith Bank.

In a statement issued by the anti-graft agency shortly after the ruling, EFCC vowed to challenge the ruling in an Appellate Court.

It said: 

“The attention the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has been drawn the order by Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court, Ado Ekiti, Ekiti state asking it to defreeze the accounts of Governor Ayo Fayose in Zenith Bank.

“While the Commission awaits the certified copy of the ruling, it is important to point out that this order contradicts another order by Justice M. B Idris of the Federal High Court, Lagos which gave the Commission the nod to freeze the accounts pending the conclusion of investigation. 

“This order from a court of coordinate jurisdiction was not set aside by Justice Taiwo.

“In spite of this, the Commission has taken immediate step to appeal the order by Justice Taiwo.”
