The former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, who is currently undergoing trial for a N6.9 billion fraud charges during his time as a governor, has adviced Ibikunle Amosun and Rochas Okorocha, ex-governors of Ogun State and Imo State respectively, to surrender themselves to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Reacting to the report that Okorocha was arrest by the EFCC a day after leaving government office, Fayose said he had foreseen Okorocha would be hunted by the anti-graft agency.
In a Twitter post, Fayose advised both ex-governors, Amosun and Okorocha, to give up themselves to the EFCC for questioning and investigation just as he did. He also welcomed them to the EFCC Alumni club. He wrote:
“Just reading that Okorocha was arrested by EFCC. True or not, we knew this day will come.
“However, I welcome him to the EFCC Alumni & enjoin the commission not to look away from Amosun too.
“While I encourage them to surrender themselves as I did, I welcome Mr Okorocha to the club.”
