Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose on Thursday, December 15, stormed the Ado-Ekiti branch of the Zenith Bank to make withdrawal from his hitherto frozen account following a federal high court order asking the bank to de-freeze the governor’s account.

Governor Fayose who made a withdrawal of #5m in cash thanked Nigerians for standing with him and against the recklessness of the EFCC.

The anti graft body had middle of this year, frozen personal accounts of Governor Ayodele Fayose and those of some of his associates .

The action by the EFCC prompted diverse reactions with a large majority of lawyers and Nigerians affirming the validity of the commission freezing a governor’s account, but only upon the orders of a court.
