EFCC mocks Fayose, says we’re expecting you soon
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has lampooned Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State after the failure of his preferred candidate, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, at the polls. The EFCC said in a tweet that with Fayose’s tenure ending in less than three months coupled with the loss of his immunity, he should begin to prepare to visit the commission.
The commission hinted that investigation into Fayose’s alleged N1.3 bn poultry project during his first term from 2003 to 2006, would be re-opened and the prosecution would be able to continue. His post read, “The parri (party) is over; the cloak of immunity torn apart and the staff broken. “Ekiti Integrated Poultry Project/Biological concepts Limited N1.3bn fraud case file dusted off the shelves. See you soon.”
However, a large section of Nigerians online accused the EFCC of being unprofessional and fighting a one-sided anti-corruption war. The anti-graft agency subsequently deleted their post.
