|Ekiti people troop out in solidarity with Fayose|
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday intensified investigation into the N1.35billion property scandal against Governor Ayodele Fayose by grilling his associate, Abiodun Agbele, and three more people connected with the deal.
The quizzing of the affected professionals, including a businesswoman, an accountant and an estate consultant, lasted more than eight hours.
According to investigation, the EFCC invited the three professionals for a tell-all session and to either corroborate or respond to Agbele’s revelations to its investigating team.
A top source said: “You are already aware that Agbele has been in detention in the past two weeks. He has made some confessions, but we need to invite those he wired money into their accounts.
“So, we have invited a businesswoman, an accountant and an estate consultant. We had an interactive session with these professionals for about eight hours. It took time because it was a ‘tell-all’ session.
“We have retrieved all relevant bank statements on how Agbele used the account of his company, De-Privateer, to pay for the four duplexes on Tiamiyu Savage Street on Victoria Island.
“The said properties were no doubt acquired by Agbele on behalf of Fayose. As a matter of fact, the governor was actively involved in the negotiation of the properties going by call logs.”
As at 6.32pm, the questioning of Agbele and others was still in progress.
