Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has slammed former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose with money laundering charges, ahead of his formal arraignment early next week in court.
The EFCC, which started following Fayose’s financial transactions more than two years ago, accused him of receiving N1.3 billion from the Office of the former National Security Adviser, Col, Sambo Dasuki and laundering the cash on choice property in Lagos and Abuja and receiving kickbacks from contractors.
Meanwhile, details of the charges of money laundering, breach of public trust and corruption leveled against Fayose have not been made public.
Fayose was charged alongside a company known as Spotless Nigeria Limited, which the commission claimed was used as a front for perpetrating economic crimes by the suspect. Fayose was reported to have signed and collected the charges for himself and his company, Spotless.
Recall that Ayodele Fayose had spent for four days in EFCC custody after presenting himself to the anti-corruption agency and wearing a “mock” shirt tagged “EFCC HERE I COME.”
