Court summons EFCC, Zenith Bank over Fayose’s frozen accounts

28 June 2016, 18:12

Ado Ekiti - The Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has dragged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Zenith Bank Plc to court over the freezing of his accounts, reports NewsDay

The case was filed on Tuesday on behalf of Fayose by Mike Ozekhome at the Federal High Court, Ado Ekiti.

The EFCC had last week Tuesday allegedly frozen Fayose’s account numbers 1003126654 and 9013074033 in Zenith bank for alleged money laundering running into N1.2 billion being money allegedly taken from the $2.1 billion arms fund in the office of the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

Fayose had through an ex parte order sought a mandatory order unfreezing the accounts belonging and operated by him pending the determination of his interlocutory application.

The order according to Daily Post was supported by 18-paragraph affidavit , a lone Exhibit, which was a letter issued to Governor Fayose by Zenith bank confirming that the EFCC actually placed a restriction order on the accounts and a written address.

The court after listening to Fayose's pleas ordered that the EFCC and Zenith Bank should appear in court on July 4 to show cause why the Fayose’s demands on the illegal freezing of his accounts should not be granted.
