The charges against Fayose were stealing, receiving money from Musiliu Obanikoro, a former minister, criminal breach of trust, illegal acquisition of property in Abuja and Lagos and illegally acquiring property in the name of his sister in Abuja, among others. Fayose however pleaded not guilty when the charges were read to him.

The 150 fed include people detained by the EFCC and visitors who came around.

In his usual characteristics, Fayose took his Stomach Infrastructure to the EFCC office in Lagos today as he provided food for over 150 people (detainees and visitors). The highly elated detainees jointly sang the National Anthem after their stomachs were adequately serviced

Olayinka also shared that the former governor provided legal representation for who are in genuine need of one, and promised to assist those who are unable to meet their bail conditions.
