Fayose, Ekiti Civil Servants Celebrate Release Of Detainees

Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti, Thursday, led civil servants in the state to welcome two of his commissioners hitherto detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. The ex-detainees are Toyin Ojo, commissioner for finance, and Yemisi Owolabi, the accountant-general of the state. The duo was arrested after shunning the commission’s invitation for them to appear before it.

Lere Olayinka, spokesman for the governor, in a statement urged civil servants to converge on the Fajuyi Park in Ado-Ekiti, the capital of the state, to welcome the two released appointees.

“Today, God gave Ekiti State and its people another victory over the EFCC and its APC collaborators as the State Commissioner for Finance, Chief Toyin Ojo and Accountant General, Mrs. Yemisi Owolabi were released after spending 14 days in EFCC detention for doing nothing.

“In celebration of this victory over agents of tyranny, all public servants in Ekiti State are enjoined to converge on Fajuyi, Ado Ekiti by 10 am tomorrow, Thursday, October 12, 2017 to welcome the Commissioner for Finance and the Accountant General back to the State.

“Governor Fayose will be at Fajuyi, Ado Ekiti at 10 am. All lovers of justice should join the governor to welcome our commissioner for Finance and Accountant General back to the State,” Olayinka’s statement said.
