EFCC Release Fayose's Property On The Orders Of Federal High Court Abuja


Question is: is the Federal Government losing its battle on corruption or are they full of shit??? One may wonder if their was really a corruption case against Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose or is it just political witch-hunting which they APC government have vehemently denied. I mean it seems Fayose is winning every case and what does it look like? 

According to Vanguard News, A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, yesterday, ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to release all property belonging to Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State that were attached based on the order of the court made on July 20 and August 2, 2016.

Trial judge, Justice Nnamdi Dimgba gave the order while ruling on the application by Governor Fayose through his counsel Chief Mike Ozekheme, SAN. He brought the application after the EFCC had seized his property.

Ruling on the application which was argued, yesterday, Justice Dimgba noted that the interim orders which were made on July 20, and reaffirmed on August 3, were made to last for 45 days to enable EFCC carry out its investigations.

Justice Dimgba said the orders ought to elapse on September 3, but from the court record “no application was filed by the EFCC to extend the order. “I hold that in the absence of an application to renew it, the interim attachment orders had elapsed on September 3. “Consequently, all the attachments, seizure, forfeitures and occupation of the said property and accounts are nullity,” he ruled.

However, he stated that it would be a different matter if the EFCC still occupy the property based on the order of court of other jurisdiction.

Justice Dimgba blamed EFCC which obtained a similar order from Justice

Okon Abang court for not telling the judge they had obtained an order that elapsed on September 3, when they approached him on November 3. “I do not agree with EFCC that Fayose motion is an academic exercise,” he further said.
