Fayose reacts to the arrest of Ekiti Govt officials

The Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose has reacted to the arrest of some officials serving under him by the EFCC. The Governor said “The EFCC is obviously living up to its status as the attack-dog of the All Progressives Congress government, but Ekiti State government under Governor Ayodele Fayose cannot be intimidated.”
According to him, “It is funny that the EFCC, in the bid to carry out its usual hatchet job against Governor Fayose, failed to take into cognisance the subsisting court order, which forbids any official of the Ekiti State government from being arrested by the EFCC. Up till today, the court order has not been appealed and it subsists.”
It could be recalled that the EFCC on Thursday arrested Ekiti state's Commissioner for Finance, Chief Toyin Ojo, and the Accountant General, Mrs Yemisi Owolabi.
