Fayose Withdraws N5m From Accounts Court Ordered EFCC To Unfreeze

Governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose stormed a Zenith Bank branch in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday to withdraw N5 million from his accounts which were unfrozen following an order from a Federal High Court.
The accounts were frozen on June 21 over suspicion that the money found in them was proceeds of financial crime.
A court had ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commision (EFCC) to freeze the two accounts belonging to the governor, but a suit was filed on June 26 challenging the order.
The anti-graft agency is said to not have followed due process.
Fayose arrived the bank premises located on Onigari-Secretariat Road junction in the state capital, and was there between 1:20 p.m. and 3: 20 p.m. on Thursday.
He served the copies of the court judgement ordering EFCC and Zenith Bank to immediately unfreeze the accounts on the branch manager, Mojeed Adekunle to effect the withdrawal.
Adekunle told the governor that his bank had received a copy of the judgement and would obey the order.
