The Federal High Court in Lagos on Friday authorised a former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, who is facing an alleged N2.2billion fraud trial, to go on a foreign medical trip.
Justice C.J. Aneke made the order following an application by Fayose’s lawyer, Ola Olanipekun (SAN).
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, which is prosecuting Fayose through its counsel, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), did not oppose the application.
The judge adjourned further hearing in the case till January 22, 2021.
Fayose is on trial alongside a firm, Spotless Investment Ltd.
