A Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday ordered the remand of the immediate past Governor of Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose in EFCC custody pending bail after he was arraigned for misappropriating N30.8 billion.

After the arraignment of Fayose, the defence counsel, Mr Kanu Agabi (SAN), who is a former Attorney General of the Federation, informed the court of a motion on notice for the bail of the accused.

He told the court that same had been served on the prosecution.

In response, the EFCC Prosecutor, Mr Rotimi Oyedepo, confirmed service of the bail application but told the court that he required time to reply.

Justice Mojisola Olatoregun, consequently, adjourned the case until Oct. 24 for the hearing of the bail application.

Meanwhile, following a plea by defence counsel on the temporary remand of Fayose, the court ordered that he be remanded in custody of the EFCC pending bail.

The embattled former governor had appeared in court in a gloomy look with a large number of supporters on hand.

He had pleaded not guilty to the 11-count charge. Argument on his bail application is ongoing.

EFCC is prosecuting Fayose alongside his company — Spotless Investment Ltd. (NAN)
