More facts have begun to surface on how the Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Ayodele Fayose acquired properties from the slush fund allegedly got from the former National Security Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Colonel Sambo Dasuki.
The Eagle Online reports suggests that no fewer than seven houses have allegedly been purchased by Governor Ayo Fayose since he returned to power in 2014, sources close to the investigation of the Ekiti State helmsman have revealed.
And some of them, including one worth N1.2 billion in Lagos State, were said to have had their transactions handled for Fayose by his close ally, Abiodun Agbele, who is popularly called Abbey.
Agbele was arrested on June 27 by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
It was learnt that Agbele’s arrest was facilitated by a socialite Lagos-based lady, who is close to Fayose and simply identified as Oyin, when he went to pick up the papers for the N1.2 billion house located on Victoria Island.
The documents were meant to be altered so they do not read Fayose’s name again.
However, when Agbele got to the office of Oyin, whose business name is said to be “Safe Haven”, the lady kept him waiting until operatives of the EFCC, whom she had informed of his presence by telephone, arrived.
It was gathered that the EFCC had also closed in on Oyin over some of the Fayose deals and the only saving grace for her was to deliver Agbele to the anti-graft agency.
