On Monday, June 27, 2016, two of Governor Ayodele Fayose’s aides were arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for allegedly aiding and abetting money laundering. Some of the bankers who purportedly facilitated the part of the N4.7 billion fraud are also in the commission’s net.
In Abuja and Lagos, the suspects are being held following last week’s freezing of the accounts of the Ekiti governor in Zenith Bank.
One of the aides arrested by EFCC was identified as ABIODUN Agbele. He was reportedly picked up in Lagos while allegedly trying to doctor documents on some properties of Fayose.
The spokesman of EFCC, Wilson Uwajeren confirmed the arrests, but failed to reveal further information on the identity of the suspects.
