THE Federal High Court sitting in
Ado Ekiti has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to
immediately remove the embargo placed on two personal accounts of Governor
Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State.
Justice Taiwo Taiwo, in his
judgement in the suit brought before his court by Fayose, through his counsel,
Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), held that the EFCC erred by freezing the accounts
because the action was in breach of Section 308 of the 1999 constitution.
He set aside a ruling of another
Federal High Court, which the EFCC had obtained as a ground for the action,
saying the order had infringed the right of the applicant.
