The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has attacked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC over the detention of ex-President Jonathan's aide, Warimopei Dudafa.

In a report by Daily Post, Fayose claimed that the EFCC is been used by the All Progressive Congress led government to witch-hunt members of the Peoples Democratic Party and office holders in the past administration.

"EFCC under President Mohammadu Buhari is acting as if it is above the law and Nigerians and the international community must remind the commission that we are in a democracy where rule of law is sacrosanct," Fayose reportedly said.

Continuing, he said, 'In the case of the former Special Assistant on Domestic Affairs to ex-President Jonathan, no one is saying those suspected of corrupt practices should not be investigated and tried, but it is wrong for Warimopei Dudafa to have been kept in EFCC custody for over two weeks without trial.'

The governor also frowned at the invasion of the Abuja residence of former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode saying it's babaric.

'Also, it is a demonstration of barbarism for the same EFCC that invited Fani-Kayode to its office on Monday to have invaded his house yesterday, holding the occupants hostage for eight hours when there is no evidence that Fani-Kayode refused to honour EFCC invitation.

'Why the show of barbarism by the EFCC as if Nigeria is now back to 1984 when Buhari was a military dictator?' he asked rheteorically.

Gov. Fayose has, since the inception of the current administration, attacked the Presidency as well as the All Progressive Congress.
