The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has fired back at Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State over his claim that he cannot be investigated because of immunity currently covering him as a sitting governor.
Fayose had on Monday claimed that his account was frozen by the anti-graft agency for a reason he could not explain.
Reacting, however, the commission said that the immunity being enjoyed by any governor did not prevent the agency from investigating suspicious movements of money into his accounts.
The Spokesman for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren told Vanguard that the anti-graft agency had the right to investigate any governor whose account was being used to move funds.
“Immunity does not prevent EFCC from investigating suspicious accounts of those enjoying immunity and Fayose cannot be an exception,” the commission said.
