Armed operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) are reported to have invaded the Abuja Residence of Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose, whose tenure will officially end today (Tuesday) when a new governor of the state, Kayode Fayemi , will be inaugurated.
The alleged invasion of the home of Fayose was announced on his Twitter handle;
The tweet reads, “Armed men of the @officialEfcc have invaded the Abuja residence of the immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, @GovAyoFayose .Details sketchy but it can be confirmed that the EFCC operatives came in three hilux vehicles.”
Fayose had in an earlier tweet wrote, “It is known to the public that I offered to make myself available at the EFCC office today. However, as I write, there are strange movements around my residence and I’m aware of planned invasion any moment from now. Despite this, I’ll be at the commission’s office tomorrow as promised.”
The EFCC had summoned Fayose, a fierce critic of President Muhammadu Buhari to appear in its office in Abuja this Tuesday for interrogations over alleged corruption.
