EFCC Drama Halts Fayose's Court Case

The internal wranglings at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) office has impeded the ongoing trial of Ekiti state former governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose.

The N2.2bn fraud case which has been on since July 2, 2019 was stalled today as one of the witnesses lined up by the prosecution team couldn't appear.

According to Mr. Rotimi Jacob's (SAN) the representative of the prosecution team, the witness couldn't make it "because of happenings in the EFCC."

The EFCC recently went through a torrid phase as acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu alongside 12 other senior officials were suspended and currently being investigated over allegations of abuse of office and mismanagement of recovered assets.

The case has been adjourned till October 19 and 20 by Justice C.J Aneke.
