The Governor stated that he would like an official statement from the bank so that he could initiate the second stage of his revelations, condemning the bank and the media for acting on hearsay.
Fayose philosophically quoted a bible verse when speaking on his accusers saying that those without sin should cast the first stone.
News24 Nigeria reported that he faces an uphill battle in his political war against President Muhammadu Buhari with his personal bank accounts frozen and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission bearing down on him.
