Ekiti To EFCC: No Thanks For Release Of Our Officials
The Ekiti State Government on Thursday berated the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for the “unlawful” detention of its officials.
The duo who were picked up by the commission on September 28 and held for two weeks before releasing them unconditionally.
Praising Governor Fayose’s efforts in delivering good governance, Kolade continued, “Today, Ekiti is progressing in education and physical infrastructure as evident in outstanding performances in NECO, WAEC, and other external examinations. Also, legacy projects such as the gigantic fly-over bridge, ultra-modern Oja-Oba market, modern High Court, befitting Women Development Centre complex, and dualisation of roads and other projects are taking place simultaneously.”
The state’s commissioner for justice also condemned the detention of the officials without bringing forth any evidence of charges against them: “Ekiti people vehemently condemn these politically motivated acts of injustice, wickedness and high-handedness being perpetrated on Nigerians and Ekiti people in particular on regular basis by the EFCC, its co-travelers and their task-masters in their desperation to retain their jobs.
“The question to ask is that; what is the allocation coming to Ekiti from the federation account and who are those that have complained to the EFCC on missing fund in Ekiti?
