Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of coercing witnesses to implicate him, having been unable to establish any case against him.
The governor, in a letter to the EFCC dated October 10, 2018, said specifically that the commission was doing everything possible to induce and or coerce Mr Maroun Azeez Mecheleb to make false statement to implicate me when he appears in your office at noon today (11/10/2018).
Governor Fayose said “a situation where a prospective witness is being induced or coerced to change his earlier statement by the Operatives of the Commission is nothing but persecution.”
