Fayose lands in Lagos ahead of court trial


The immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has arrived Lagos, ahead of his arraignment by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) scheduled for today (Monday).
He was flown to Lagos from Abuja on Sunday after he had submitted himself to the EFCC on October 16, 2018, over the commission’s allegations against him bothering on fraud and money laundering.
EFCC has also prepared an 11-count charge sheet, which include offences relating to receiving illegal monies to fund his 2014 governorship campaign in Ekiti State, among other allegations of benefitting from proceeds of money laundering.
According to his media aide, Lere Olayinka, Fayose arrived via Max Air with Flight Number VM1643.
Olayinka disclosed Fayose’s travel schedule on Sunday via a tweet that read: “Fayose in a relaxed mood with an official of @officialEFCC at the Abuja Airport enroute Lagos for arraignment at Federal High Court, Ikoyi tomorrow. He arrived Lagos a few minutes ago via Max Air Flight Number Vm1643.”
Fayose is expected to be arraigned at the Federal High Court, Ikoyi.
