Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) are currently grilling a former governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, over misappropriation of funds to the tune of N4 billion.
It was learnt that 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.
A source within the commission at the EFCC headquarters said the former governor honoured the invitation earlier extended to him.
The spokesman of the anti-graft, Wilson Uwujaren, also confirmed Fayemi’s presence at the commission’s custody, 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,” Uwujaren said.
