Following the viral video of ex Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose dancing Salsa with a white woman, while on a ‘medical trip’ abroad, the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has reacted to the video.
The anti-graft boss made this known through his special assistant on media and publicity, Tony Amokeodo, on Thursday, January 2, in a telephone interview with PREMIUM TIMES. Tony Amokeodo, said the commission is only prosecuting the former governor, not persecuting him.
He added that since Mr Fayose’s trial is still on, the EFCC can only wait till he returns on the next adjourned date for the continuation of his trail.
”We are not going to react to that video (on) the grounds that the EFCC is prosecuting him, not persecuting him,” Mr Amokeodo said.
”Besides, the court granted him permission to travel abroad for medical attention. We are of the opinion that the former governor would have to be in court and that his trial is on course. And we will definitely meet him on the next adjourned date.
Recall that Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti State, is currently being prosecuted for a N2.2 billion fraud by the EFCC.
