The Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has instituted a suit against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and Zenith Bank Plc over the freezing of his accounts.
According to Eagle Online, the case was filed on Tuesday on behalf of Fayose by constitutional lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), at the Federal High Court, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital.
The Court ordered that the EFCC and Zenith Bank should appear before it on July 4 to show cause why Fayose’s demands on the freezing of his accounts should not be granted.
Fayose is seeking the de-freezing of the accounts.
The EFCC had alleged that the accounts were used in receiving about N4.7 billion from the Office of the National Security Adviser.
The anti-graft agency said its investigation traced the fund to part of the funds used for the prosecution of the election that produced Fayose as governor in 2014.
