Moments after the EFCC seized mansions belonging to Ayo Fayose, the governor has reacted. He insisted that the houses linked to him were bought legitimately.
A statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said any property that might be linked to Fayose or his company was “bought legitimately and his properties were duly declared in his assets declaration form and sources of such funds were not illicit.”
He said since the money he got for his election was from “legitimate sources” and not from the ONSA, “how the money was spent remained his own business and not that of anyone.”
But EFCC now have video evidence of how Billions of Naira, Nigeria’s money, was moved with aircraft by Musiliu Obaniko to Fayose, hence he can’t claim the cash is legitimate. They will meet in court.
