BREAKING: EFCC Cannot Investigate Fayose – Court

Gov Fayose

The Federal High Court, Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State has held that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, lacked power to investigate finances of the Ekiti State.

“In federalism, the Federal Government is not an overseer or supervisor regarding finances of a State,” the court said.

In its opinion, only the State House of Assembly can investigate finances of a State.

The court therefore restrained the EFCC from interfering in the running of Ekiti State by either investigating or arresting any official of the State Government.
