The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested Toyin Ojo, Ekiti state commissioner for finance, and the accountant general of the state.
Operatives of the anti-graft agency picked them up in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, on Thursday.
Wilson Uwujaren, spokesman of the agency, said the government officials were arrested following their refusal to honour the commission’s invitation.
He said in a statement;
“They are currently in the custody of the EFCC.
They were picked up today [yesterday] following their refusal to honour previous invitations for interrogation in relation to pending investigation on the misuse of bailout funds by the Ayodele Fayose administration,”
The officials were arrested while Fayose was officially launching his Presidential ambition.
