Court rejects EFCC’s bid to freeze Governor Fayose’s account

Published

on

Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the
Federal High Court, Ado-Ekiti has rejected the Economic and Financial
Crimes Commission (EFCC’s) application for a stay of execution on an
order asking it to unfreeze Governor Ayo Fayose’s account.

Justice
Taiwo Taiwo on December 13, 2016, had ordered that the Zenith bank
account of Fayose be unfrozen, describing it as a violation of the
Governor’s rights.
The same Justice Taiwo rejected the application filed by the EFCC on Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
According to Punch, the Judge said “once a judgment is being executed, you cannot stay the execution again.”
He
also said that the Governor enjoys immunity, adding that the identity
of the person whose account is to be frozen was concealed.
Justice Taiwo said “A
court of law does not embark on conjecture or guesswork as same can
hardly produce a just and equitable decision. It is the duty of the
applicant to provide materials upon which the court will grant the
application.
“The matter was not
instituted as a criminal suit, a court cannot go on a voyage of
discovery to fish for facts to grant equitable remedy when the
respondent averred that he had defendants and was ready to return the
money if found liable at trial after his tenure.

“The
court cannot stay a judgment already executed and the whole exercise in
freezing the governor’s accounts amounts to a breach of the provisions
of Section 308 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of
Nigeria.
“For the reasons earlier stated
and the constitutional provisions referred to, I cannot but conclude
that I find no merit in the application. The order being sought is
hereby refused and the application is dismissed.”
According to reports, Governor Fayose went to the Ekiti state branch of Zenith bank to withdraw N5m when his account was unfrozen.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
