JUST IN: Court Denies Fayose Bail, Adjourns Case
October 22, 2018 EFCC, Fayose, High Court
The federal high court in Ikoyi, Lagos state has declined the bail Application for Ayodele Fayose, the former governor of Ekiti state today.
On Monday, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arraigned Fayose on an 11-count charge bordering on abuse of office.
He was accused of misappropriating N30.8 billion while in office but the ex-governor pleaded not guilty when the charges were read to him.
Subsequently, Kanu Agabi, Fayose’s counsel, filed a bail application on behalf of his client but CMA Olatoregun, the presiding judge, rejected the application and ordered that Fayose should remain in EFCC custody till Wednesday.
