EFCC may seek permanent forfeiture of six assets traced to Fayose

Former Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose may lose at least six choice assets – if a court agrees with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The anti-graft agency may apply for permanent forfeiture of the assets in Lagos and Abuja.

But Fayose, who made a dramatic appearance at the EFCC Abuja headquarters on Tuesday, continued to perpetrate more drama in detention by refusing to write a statement and by rejecting an administrative bail granted him by EFCC

He insisted that he should be taken to court for trial.

Fayose is being detained in connection with the ongoing probe of N4.685billion allocated to some Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) by the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

According to a source, the commission may approach the court for permanent confiscation of six properties of Fayose to recover N1.3billion and $5.377million allegedly collected by the ex-governor.
