Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has demanded a N20
billion as damages from the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission (EFCC), a written apology from to be published to all
security agencies in Nigeria, three national newspapers and the
social media as well as withdrawal of the request/directive to
security agencies to place him on security watch list.
The letter read: “By a letter Ref No: 3000/EFCC/ABJ/EG/TA/
VOL.59/010 dated 12th September, 2018, you instructed all
security agencies in Nigeria, including but not limited to the
Nigerian Customs Service (NCC), to place our client on a watch list
and to arrest him at sight upon ‘suspicion’ that he might be
attempting to flee the country.
“By these words, you have not only fallen foul of the clear
provision of Section 308 of the 1999 Constitution of the federal
republic which grants our client, as an incumbent Governor,
immunity from any criminal process/proceedings, you have also
exposed our client to ridicule, opprobrium, odium and hatred in the
eyes and opinion of the ordinary man on the street and falsely and
mischievously portrayed him as a common fugitive, a run-away
from the law who could/should be arrested at sight like a
dangerous criminal.
“A written apology to our client published to all security agencies in
Nigeria and in 3 national newspapers and the social media for the
flagrant mischievous and deliberate attempt to breach his
constitutional rights and malign him in the eyes of right thinking
members of the society.
“Payment of the sum of N20bn as damages to our client for the
flagrant, deliberate, pre-meditated and reckless libel and
unprovoked attack on his character and reputation and breach of
his constitutional right/immunity as an incumbent governor.
“Take notice that unless these demands are met within 72 hours of
the date of this letter, we shall not hesitate to carry out our client’s
firm instruction to proceed forthwith to institute legal action
against you to seek appropriate remedies before the law court
without any further recourse to you.

Is it right for Federal Government to dialogue and compensate killer herdsmen and bandits?
