EFCC to arraign Fayose's aide, Abiodun Agbele today

An ally of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, Abiodun Agbele will on Wednesday be arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on charges of N1.2bn fraud allegedly received from government purse.

The money is alleged to be part of the N4.7bn received from the Office of the National Security Adviser in 2015 by Office of the National Security Adviser and his son, Gbolahan through the account of Sylvan McNamara, a company allegedly owned by Obanikoro’s sons.

Obanikoro allegedly flew N1.2bn from the N4.7bn to Akure during the build-up to the governorship election in Ekiti State and handed the sum to Agbele for onward transfer to Fayose.

It was learnt that the EFCC filed the charges against Agbele before Justice Nnamdi Dimgba of the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday.

The EFCC had arrested Agbele in Lagos on June 28 and kept him in its custody pending investigations.
