On Tuesday, December 13, the Judge ordered the EFCC to unfreeze Governor Fayose’s account in Zenith Bank.

Justice Taiwo Taiwo ruled against the EFCC because the anti-graft agency did not follow due process in taking such an action against the Ekiti State Governor.

The EFCC plans to appeal the order.
