EFCC Questions Former Ekiti Governor Over 4 Billion Fraud
Yesterday in Ilorin, operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) questioned a former governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, over the misappropriation of funds to the tune of N4 billion.
Fayemi, 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.

“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,” Uwujaren said
