Fayose storms bank to withdraw cash from unfrozen account


Following an order by the Federal High Court on Tuesday that his accounts should be immediately unfrozen by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Governor Ayodele Fayose yesterday stormed the Ado-Ekiti branch of a new generation bank to withdraw some cash.

He arrived at about 1:20 pm and made straight for the office of the bank’s branch manager, Mr. Mojeed Adekunle, presenting a withdrawal cheque.

He reminded the manager that he had called at the bank, following the court order served on it on Wednesday, December 14.

“I am ready to wait in your office till you close for the day as I want my money in cash, “ he said firmly.

Obviously complying with the order, Adekunle promptly produced a copy of the said order and said he would act on the directive.

At exactly 3:20 pm, the governor left the bank with N5 million, saying: “ I came to the bank after serving them with the court order and I made up my mind that I won’t leave the bank until my money is given to me. And the bank has done the needful by giving me part of the money confirming that they have obeyed the court order. I want to thank Nigerians and my supporters for believing in our cause that Nigerians should not be oppressed.

‘’The rascality of EFCC must stop. And I want to thank the EFCC for obeying the court order. They placed order on two accounts, one has N82 million, the other has N300 million. I have collected N5 million now.”

    With the EFCC confirmation based on allegations of corruption levied against him by a sister agency, l think its time the whole EFCC personnel are checked. Goat can not guard yam.
    It is also important to understand why the DSS who had these information didn’t send it to the President before it took it to the Senate, can one really say that PMB was unaware of Magu’s sins. These whole mess leaves more to be desired in PMBs fight against corruption and how he runs his government with all the secrecy,family and friends running the security agencies.
