Fayose ready to expose those who funded his election.

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) were in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti state capital on Wednesday, June 22, to arrest some suspects in the N4.7billion arms cash probe.
They claimed to have found nobody as all the individuals suspected to be complicit in the cash probe have gone into hiding in the state Government House, The Nation reports.

Governor Fayose has threatened to expose those who funded his election
We have intelligence report that some of these people wanted in connection with the ongoing investigation have been moved to the Government House in Ado-Ekiti.

They are all holed up in the place but they can’t hide forever,” an EFCC source said last night.
The anti-graft agency traced about N4.75 billion of the diverted $2.1 billion arms cash to Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state and former Minister of State (Defence) Musiliu Obanikoro.
The source who pleaded anonymity said Zenith Bank reported the “suspicious transactions” of N4.745billion by Fayose’s associate, Abiodun Agbele, to the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) and his account was frozen.
Following the freezing of his account, the governor accused the bank of succumbing “EFCC intimidation” in a bid to nail him.
In a statement released yesterday, the Ekiti governor threatened to release the names of the people involved in the transfer of money into his Zenith bank account.
p>“I wish to state further that if it becomes evidently clear that those who willingly provided money for my election can no longer stand by what they did, may be because of threat from the EFCC, I will not hesitate to name names,” he said.
