Fayose was accompanied by Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, Femi Fani-Kayode and prominent lawyer, Mike Ozekhome. he was seen wearing a black t-shirt with the inscription “EFCC, I’m here”, the ex-governor said: “I am here in line with my promise that I will be here on the 16th of October, and like I said to EFCC, they should await my arrival.
This morning, they have been to my house which I think its unnecessary.”
Also speaking, Wike said: “He wrote to the EFCC that he will submit himself on the 16th of October.
“So let Nigerians know that he came by himself to EFCC without anybody harassing him, so that’s why I brought him here.”
Fayose was seen with a bag filled with his clothes.
Recall that EFCC had invited him to have a chat with the commission over alleged fraud and abuse of office.
Fayose was invited to answer questions on the N1.3 billion he allegedly collected from former Minister of Stare for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro during the build up of the 2015 general elections
