Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has slammed a N20 billion suit on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for placing him on a watchlist.

He said that the EFCC’s order did not only breach his constitutional immunity but that it also exposed him to public ridicule.

Fayose, in a letter by his counsel, Obafemi Adewale, dated September 3, 2018, gave the EFCC 72 hours to withdraw the request/directive to Security Agencies to place him on security watchlist and publish a written apology to all security agencies in Nigeria, three National Newspapers and the Social Media.

Special Assistant to the Governor on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said in a statement issued on Tuesday, that consequent upon EFCC failure to accede to his demands as contained in the letter, Governor Fayose’s counsel filed the suit number in Abuja last Friday.
