The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has responded to a letter by Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose on why he is unavailable for questioning at the moment.

Fayose had in his letter to the EFCC dated September 10, 2018, said he will make himself available to the anti-graft agency on October 16, 2018, to make a clarification on investigations that affect him.

Reacting, EFCC in a letter with reference number, ‘EFCC/EC/GC/31/2173 dated September 1, 2018 and signed by the EFCC’s Director of Operations, Umar Mohammed, the anti-dated September 13, 2018 requested the Governor to turn himself in for interrogation on Thursday, 20th September, 2018, without prejudice to his immunity under section 308 of the constitution.
