He was accompanied by his Lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode.

As he was going into custody, Fayose told Reporters that: “Nobody should be afraid of the EFCC, especially when you have nothing to hide.

He also reportedly told his interrogators: “I deny all the allegations, take me to court.”

Sources stated that Fayose would respond to issues raised by three teams of Investigators.

A source added: “He made a statement where he denied all the allegations, and asked the Commission to take him to court.

“So far, he has not responded to how he came about N1.3 billion and $5.377 million from ONSA.

He has more issues to clarify; we are going to detain him.”

The source added: “There are three teams handling the allegations against the former Governor.

There is a special team managing his suspended trial, because he had immunity as a Governor; a separate team for the N4.685 billion ONSA fraud, and the third panel probes his just completed tenure.

“Definitely, we are going to detain Fayose, because he has a lot of issues to clarify.”

The Head of Media and Publicity of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, merely disclosed that: “The ex-Governor is undergoing interrogation.”
