The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has written to the Nigeria customs service to put out-going governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose on its watch list.
The comptroller-general of customs, was asked to watch Fayose, who’s under investigation by the EFCC for allegedly abusing his office, laundering funds etc, the EFCC from fleeing from the country.
In the letter dated 12th September, the EFCC wrote:
“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.
Responding to EFCC’s letter, the customs boss asked 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.
