EFCC has asked the Nigeria customs service to place Ayodele Fayose, outgoing governor of Ekiti whose tenure ends on October 16, on its watch list.
Fayose is being investigated by the EFCC for alleged abuse of office, money laundering, among others. In a letter dated September 12, and addressed to the comptroller-general of customs, the EFCC said Fayose may be planning to flee the country.
EFCC request “There is a reasonable suspicion suggesting that he may likely leave the country either through the land borders, airports or seaports in order to evade investigation.
Hence, you are kindly requested to watch-list him and arrest him,” read the letter signed by Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the EFCC.
