The Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has cried out that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has frozen his personal account with Zenith Bank Plc.
Fayose who spoke on Monday in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, said that when he wanted to operate the account personally, he was denied by the bank.
He told newsmen that officials of the Bank told him that an embargo has been placed on his account.
Fayose had been having a running battle with the EFCC over the funding of his governorship campaign in 2014.
There had been accusations that the campaign was funded with funds from the Office of the National Security Adviser.
Fayose had denied this, saying his campaign funds were generated from the ordinary people who wanted him in power.
When contacted, the spokesman of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, said he was not aware of that the governor’s account had been frozen. [myad]
