The source while speaking to The Nation,  that Fayose has been served with the charges against him and his trial notice.



Wilson Uwujaren who is the EFCC’s spokesman also confirmed that “Fayose has been served with charges alongside his company, Spotless.”



Since he stepped down as the Governor of Ekiti State, Fayose has been in EFCC’s custody after he surrendered himself  on Tuesday, October 16, 2018.



The anti-graft agency also obtained an order from a Federal High Court mandating it to keep Fayose for 14 days.



One of the major reasons why Fayose has been detained by the anti-graft agency is the Dasuki loot

Fayose is  currently being investigated for allegedly receiving  N1.3 billion from the office of former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

EFCC has confirmed they have likely charges against the former Governor.

The EFCC source said “We have preferred charges against Fayose at a Federal High Court in Lagos.



“He will be prosecuted for receiving N1.299 billion and $5.3 million from ONSA through a former minister, Musiliu Obanikoro.



“Although the illicit cash was released for the 2014 governorship campaign of Fayose, it was diverted to acquiring properties.



“The minister flew N1.299 billion in cash in two flights to Akure Airport for Fayose, and it was Agbele who received the slush funds from Obanikoro.

The former Governor has said he didn't collect any money from the Ex-minister.

“While Fayose admitted knowing Obanikoro, he told his interrogators that he did not collect $5.3 million from the ex-minister.



“The EFCC will relocate Fayose from Abuja to Lagos either on Saturday or Sunday for the trial.”



In a bid to prove their discoveries, EFCC has also released photos of a property which was wrongly acquired by the former Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose.
