N4.7bn fraud: EFCC arrests Fayose's men

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested two men, who allegedly aided and abetted Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, to launder part of the cash taken from the Office of the former National Security Officer, Col. Sambo Dasuki (Rtd.).

One of the detained men, a certain Abiodun Agbele, was reportedly picked up at a location in Lagos while trying
to doctor vital documents relating to some property he had bought for the embattled Governor.

The arrest was confirmed by the EFCC Spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren; but he did not give further details.

"It is true that we arrested some men who were fronting for the Governor. They are in our Lagos Office. That is all I can say for now," Uwujaren said last night.

But it was gathered that EFCC operatives had also picked up some officials of a bank, which the Governor said had helped him with funds to run his election, and moved them to Abuja.

According to EFCC sources, Abiodun Agbele, had been on the commission's watchlist for some days now, following the discovery that he was the arrowhead in the receipt and laundering of huge sums of money from a former Defence Minister, Musiliu Obanikoro, who has since denied doling out any money to Fayose.
