EFCC Raids Fayose’s Residence In Search Of 'Atiku Election Money', PDP Reacts 3

The Afao Ekiti residence of the immediate past Governor of Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose, has been raided by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The is coming barely less than 24hours after Fayose raised an alarm via his Twitter page that the EFCC  is coming to search his house in the state for the election money of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.

The raid was confirmed in a statement released by the state’s PDP Publicity Secretary, Jackson Adebayo on Friday night. The statement reads:

“Armed operatives of the EFCC stormed Fayose’s residence a few minutes ago to conduct a search, claiming that he was in the custody of fund meant for the PDP in the Southwest, since he is the Coordinator of the Atiku/Obi Presidential Campaign Council in the zone.”

“They subjected the former governor and his guests to that level of harassment and oppression just because of tomorrow’s elections was the height of desperation by the APC government.”

The party commended youths in Afao Ekiti for trouping out en masse in solidarity with the former governor, adding that the peaceful conduct of youths, even when provoked by the EFCC operatives, was commendable.

The party called on all well-meaning Nigerians as well as the international community to prevail on the APC to stop using instruments of government to harass, intimidate and oppress Nigerians perceived as not being on the same page with its clueless government.
