|BREAKING: Appeal Court Freezes Fayose’s Account by starz: 4:09 pm On April 19, 2018|
A court of appeal sitting in Ado Ekiti has directed the freezing of the account of Ayo Fayose, governor of Ekiti state.
In 2016, a federal high court sitting in Ado Ekiti set aside an earlier order of a federal high court in Lagos empowering the EFCC to freeze two Zenith Bank accounts of Fayose.
The court had ordered the EFCC to immediately lift the freeze order on the two accounts belonging to the governor, saying the anti-graft agency did not follow due process.
The judge said the rights of the governor had been infringed upon, considering the circumstance of his office.
He described Fayose as “a genuinely deprived person who rushed to the court to seek constitutional protection”.
“The plaintiff is entitled to be heard before his property or money can be seized; doing otherwise will amount to denying him fair hearing and constitutional rights,” he said.
The judge also refused to grant another relief asking for payment of N5billion as exemplary damages. (TheCable)
