Court orders EFCC to defreeze Fayose’s account

The Federal High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti has ordered the EFCC to immediately remove the embargo placed on two personal accounts of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State.  Justice Taiwo Taiwo, in his judgement in the suit brought before his court by Fayose, held that the EFCC erred by freezing the accounts because the action was in breach of Section 308 of the 1999 constitution.  He set aside a ruling of another Federal High Court, which the EFCC had obtained as a ground for the action, saying the order had infringed the right of the applicant.
