A source said, “We are expecting Fayose to show up at our office next week. He has nowhere to run to since he is under security watch and cannot leave the country through any land border, seaport or airport.

“We have also set up a special team of investigators that will interrogate him immediately after the expiration of his tenure”.

Meanwhile, in a related development, the governor’s spokesperson, Idowu Adelusi, said the governor is ready to acknowledge the invitation of the EFCC.

In a statement, Adelusi said, “Governor Fayose is an honourable man. He will not run away. He has already stated that he will make himself available next Monday once his tenure expires. He made this clear in a letter recently.

“Even when he was not under immunity, the governor honoured the EFCC invitations. The EFCC is not a court of law and cannot declare a person guilty. The governor will be available next week, no doubt”.
