How come the EFCC is allowing itself become so brazenly bias just satisfy some characters in the Presidency who want to see Governor Ayo Fayose humiliated? The man has said he will come answer any questions you have without drama. People are wondering why this letter, which refer to a state governor like a common criminal? Sigh!
Fayose who enjoys immunity from prosecution as a result of his present office ends his tenure as governor of Ekiti state on October 16.
He is being probed 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.
“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.
In its response, the customs instructed all zonal coordinators, area commanders and comptrollers to monitor Fayose.
“Consequently, you are requested to monitor the subject and report to Economic and Financial Crimes Commission through the provided contact details if sighted,” the customs wrote in a letter dated September 14.
Politics of anti-corruption fight in Nigeria is becoming something else.
