Houses linked to Fayose in Ekiti seized by EFCC


It has been reported that The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Thursday sealed off property linked to the former governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, in no fewer than seven locations.

The sealed landed properties were marked in red ink inscription: “EFCC under investigation KEEP OFF ABJ-HQ FAFI.”

However, a new update reveals that a member of Ekiti State House of Assembly, Dr. Samuel Omotoso, stated that a two-storey commercial building located at Okesa Market and sealed by the EFCC, belongs to him.

Omotoso described the EFCC action as “political infringement on my property and personal harassment.”

The lawmaker added that the EFCC action was as a result of his loyalty to Fayose, saying: “This attempt to malign my name by EFCC by linking my family property to Dr. Ayo Fayose is political and was done in clear bad faith.

“A simple check at the land registry would have put paid to this unnecessary exercise and the accompanying media sensation, as all documents relating to the joint ownership of the said property by my family is in the public domain,” Omotoso said.

Fayose has since denied ownership of the buildings, as contained in a press release by his media aide, Mr. Lere Olayinka.
