The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has confirmed that Ekiti State former Governor, Kayode Fayemi, is with it.
It said he was there for ‘explanations’ on a N4bn he was suspected to have mismanaged.
It was gathered that Fayemi, who is also a former Minister of Mines and Steel Development during President Muhammadu Buhari’s first term, was still undergoing interrogation at about 4:15pm on Thursday at Ilorin zonal command of the anti-graft agency.
“He’s only in our Ilorin zonal office basically to answer some questions that bordered on alleged fraud of N4 billion belonging to Ekiti State. He would likely be released tonight or tomorrow morning after explanations,” the detective said.
The spokesman of the anti-graft, Wilson Uwujaren, also confirmed Fayemi’s presence at the commission’s custody to our correspondent but declined further comment.
“Yes, it is true. He’s with us. He’s in Ilorin zonal office answering questions but I won’t make further comments on that,” ‘Daily Trust’ quotes Uwujaren as saying.
