The Federal High Court in Ado Ekiti has ordered the EFCC to unfreeze the funds in Governor Ayodele Fayose’s Zenith bank accountswith immediate effect.
EFCC had frozen the accounts in June.
Justice Taiwo Taiwo however, on Tuesday ruled the action as illegal, wrongful, unlawful and unconstitutional.
The judge said the EFCC action breached the governor’s fundamental rights to fair hearing, as it did not make him a party to the proceedings for the interim freezing of the account.
He said EFCC suppressed facts by not disclosing to the court that granted the interim freezing order that the two accounts that were frozen belonged to Governor who enjoys total constitutional immunity.
According to Fayose’s Counsel, Mike Ozekhome, the judgement also laid to rest all the abracadabra of the EFCC in illegally, wrongfully, unlawfully and unconstitutionally going about on a rampage freezing Nigeria citizens accounts with reckless abandon
