The Former Governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose is preparing to hand-over himself to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Tuesday (today) with his bedclothes and pillowcase.
Fayose finishes his second term tenure as the Governor of Ekiti State in the midnight of Monday. He will honour the visitation of EFCC over the allegations that he received about N1.3bn from the Office of the National Security Adviser through the then Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro.
The former Governor told the newsmen that, “I will be there on Tuesday. I am not begging for any bail. It is up to them. If they want me, they should just give me a bed. I have done by bed bedclothes, I have done my pillowcase, I have my English and Yoruba bibles. I am prepared for them. Nobody should worry about me. Only cowards die many times before their deaths.”
It was also revealed that some of the People Democratic Party members will accompany Fayose to the EFCC headquarters in Abuja. The likes of Fani-Kayode has promised to go with Fayose. Fani-Kayode disclosed that Fayose also visited him when he was in the EFCC custody.
It is not certain at the time of reporting whether or not EFCC will detain Fayose when he visits the commission.
