The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has re-arraigned the former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, and his company, Spotless Limited, before a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos over charges on money laundering and non-declaration of his assets.
According to reports gathered, Fayose and his company were re-arraigned on Thursday before Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke on 11 charges.
It was also reported that the former governor and a man identified as Mr Abiodun Agbele, who is also standing trial on alleged money laundering offences before another division of the court, were alleged to have on June 17, 2014, taken possession of N1.219 billion, to fund Fayose’s 2014 gubernatorial campaign in Ekiti State.
They were accused of committing criminal breach of trust, theft, and stealing public funds.
The trial continues on Friday, December 3 before Justice Aneke, as EFCC is expected to call its 12th witness to testify against him.
