The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) has denounced a leaked audio purportedly about former Ekiti-State Governor, Ayodele Fayose who is currently in its custody as fake.

According to a statement from the EFCC, the audio, in which acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, purportedly made comments to effect that nothing will happen peradventure Ayo Fayose, ex-Ekiti governor dies in custody, is not real and the public should disregard it.

Read EFCC’s statement below:

“The EFCC alerts the public of an audio recording currently circulating in the social media in which Acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, purportedly made comments to effect that nothing will happen peradventure Ayo Fayose, ex-Ekiti governor dies in custody. Interestingly, the audio tape did not disclose the place where the conversation occurred and the person that Magu was supposedly talking to.

Members of the public are advised to disregard this disingenuous creation an handiwork of mischief makers intent on distracting the EFCC from the serious work of wrapping up the investigation into the corruption allegations against Fayose.

The audio recording is fake as the comments did not emanate from the Chairman of the EFCC. Purveyors of this fake news especially a former spokesperson of a leading political party are warned to desist”

Fayose was detained by the EFCC two days ago when he presented himself at the anti-graft agency’s office over allegations of a N1.3 billion fraud.
