Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has said that no one can intimidate him following the arrest of one of associates on money laundering charges.

Fayose made the comment via a statement released by his media aide, Lere Olayinka on Tuesday, June 28, 2016.

The statement reads:

It must be pointed out that at no time was Mr Abiodun Agbele invited by the EFCC, and if he had been invited, he would have honoured the invitation. Therefore, there is nothing to celebrate in his arrest if it is not political.

As already pointed out, Governor Ayodele Fayose does not have anything to do with any fund from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA). Also, the person said to have been arrested is an adult and will defend himself when the time comes.

Subjecting him to media trial as EFCC has been doing since the inception of this government will only give our adversaries momentary sense of joy. We await reports of EFCC investigations and we hope that the anti-corruption agency will be civil enough to allow an open and transparent trial in competent court of law and not media trial just to get at Governor Fayose because of his uncompromising stance against the misrule of the APC/Buhari led federal government.

Finally, like we have maintained, Governor Fayose will remain resolute in making his opinions known on national issues and will not be intimidated.
