The immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, is set to spend two weeks in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission after the anti-graft agency obtained a remand order from a Federal Capital Territory High Court on Wednesday.
It was also garnered the remand order is subject to renewal which means Fayose could spend more than two weeks in detention.
A reliable source said, “We have obtained a court order to hold Fayose for at least two weeks pending investigation. He could be released earlier or later than two weeks depending on the outcome of the investigation.
“We have many cases against Fayose being handled by three different teams. We cannot just arraign him immediately. We want to do a thorough job before taking him to court”.
Fayose is under probe for allegedly receiving N1.3bn from the Office of the National Security Adviser through a former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, during the build-up to the 2014 governorship election in Ekiti State.
