EFCC, Custom Place Fayose On Watch List




THE Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has extended its dragnet across the security agencies have place the outgoing Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on its watch list and prevent the governor from leaving the country through any land, air or sea borders.


This came as Fayose said yesterday, that he is not afraid of facing the EFCC,  ‘despite its intimidation.’ Among the agencies written to by the EFCC, is the Nigeria Customs Service, which the anti graft agency asked to be on the lookout for Fayose, in case he attempts to leave the country.

The notice was contained in a memorandum to the Comptroller General of the NCS, retired Colonel Hameed Ali, by the Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu. The memorandum entitled: “Request for watch-listing of persons, case of conspiracy, abuse of office, official corruption, theft and money laundering,” was dated September 12, 2018.


In the said memo, which also gave Fayose’s international passport number as A05804492, Magu said: “The under listed suspect is under investigation in connection with the above mentioned offences and there is reasonable suspicion suggesting that he may likely leave the country either through the land borders, Airports or Seaports in order to evade investigation. Hence, you are kindly requested to watch-list and arrest him.” Acting on the memo, Ali, in return, wrote to his top lieutenants, on the need to be on the lookout for Fayose.

The internal memo, dated September 14, 2018, was copied to All Zonal Commanders; Customs Area Controllers; Comptrollers FOU A, B, C and D; Comptrollers EMC and WMC; Comptroller CIU; and National Coordinator Headquarters Strike Force.

 In the memo, signed by the Assistant Comptroller-General (E I & I), B.A. Amajam, on behalf of the Deputy Comptroller General of the Unit, said: “Forwarded herewith is a letter from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission referenced CR 3000/EFCC/ABJ/EG/TA/VOL.59/010 dated 12th September 2018. “Consequently, you are requested to monitor the suspect and report to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission through the contact details if sighted. Above is for your information and compliance, please.”
