The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has disowned a recent gloating tweet that announced the imminent revival of a criminal case against outgoing Governor of Ekiti, Ayo Fayose.
In a statement on Monday night, spokesman of the commission, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, said the “purported tweet does not represent the views of the EFCC”.
The tweet, which appeared on the EFCC’s verified Twitter handle, @officialEFCC on Sunday afternoon, said the commission had dusted a N1.3 billion fraud case file against Fayose.
It came few hours after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced the results of Saturday’s governorship election in Ekiti.
Fayose’s protege, Prof. Kolapo Olushola-Eleka of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), lost the election to Mr Kayode Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The tweet read: “The parri (party) is over, the cloak of immunity torn apart, and the staff broken.
“Ekiti Integrated Poultry Project/Biologival concepts Limited N1.3 billion fraud case file dusted off the shelves. See you soon.”
