Bail conditions: Fayose, former Ekiti gov spends weekend in prison

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has been granted bail in the sum of N50 million.

The bail is also subject to the provision of surety with three years tax clearance.

Fayose’s International Passports is also to be submitted to the court.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Monday dragged Fayose to court over alleged financial scam.

No fewer than 11 charges were filed against him.

He was accused of involvement in a ₦1.2 billion scam.

He, however, pleaded not guilty.

He had since remained in the custody of the EFCC.

It would be recalled that Fayose submitted himself to the EFCC on October 16 shortly after his tenure as governor of Ekiti State expired.

The submission was in fulfillment of his promise to do so immediately he left office, having realised that he was being probed for alleged corruption.

His immunity as a governor could not allow the anti-graft body to prosecute him while he was in office.

He was dramatic about his visit to the EFCC office when he spotted a t-shirt with the inscription:  EFCC, I am here.
