Trouble: Fayose will face trial after leaving office – EFCC

EFCC made a statement on monday that Fayose will face trial after leaving office

Agency’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed this statement on Monday, stated that only the Federal High Court will determine Fayose’s fate not The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)

Hours after Kayode Fayemi was announced the winner of the election, the EFCC posted a tweet on its official Twitter handle, that it would resurrect a poultry scandal involving the governor.

The tweet was later taken down, following a barrage of criticism from Nigerians, including Fayose’s media aide.

“That tweet was totally irresponsible. The EFCC is not the court.

“Ayo Fayose will remain governor until October 16, so they should wait until the end of his tenure,” Fayose’s spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, said.

Fayose, like all Nigerian Governors, enjoys immunity from prosecution while in office.
