Samuel Omotoso, a legislator in the Ekiti state House of Assembly, has said that a two-storey building sealed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at Okesa Market belongs to him.
The lawmaker described the conduct of the EFCC as harassment and political infringement on his property. He claimed the anti-graft agency’s action was as a result of his loyalty to Fayose, The Punch reports.
“This attempt to malign my name by EFCC by linking my family property to Ayo Fayose is political and was done in clear bad faith.
“A simple check at the land registry would have put paid to this unnecessary exercise and the accompanying media sensation, as all documents relating to the joint ownership of the said property by my family is in the public domain,” Omotoso said.
Report shows that property allegedly belonging to the former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has been sealed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Punch stated that the former governor was arraigned by the EFCC at the Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday, October 22, on 11 counts over alleged N6.9 billion fraud.
It was gathered that after pleading not guilty to the charges, Fayose was granted bail in the sum of N50 million with one surety in like sum.
