The sealing of a property allegedly belonging to the ex-governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has generated drama as the real owner has spoken.
Dr. Samuel Omotoso, who is a member of Ekiti State House of Assembly has said that the two – storey commercial building located at Okesa Market and sealed by the EFCC, belongs to him .
Omotoso described the EFCC action as “ political infringement on my property and personal harassment. ”
The lawmaker added that the EFCC action was as a result of his loyalty to Fayose, saying : “ This attempt to malign my name by EFCC by linking my family property to Dr . Ayo Fayose is political and was done in clear bad faith .
“ A simple check at the land registry would have put paid to this unnecessary exercise and the accompanying media sensation , as all documents relating to the joint ownership of the said property by my family is in the public domain, ” Omotoso said .
Meanwhile, Fayose has since denied ownership of the sealed properties linked to him by the EFCC.
