Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has called on the Federal Government to investigate Lagos lawyer and Human Rights Activist, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN) for allegedly buying a property seized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Fayose described as scandalous for a lawyer of Falana status to involve in a N1 billion property scam in spite of his noise against corruption and frauds.
Fayose urged the government not to sweep the case under the carpet but must ensure that it is investigated.
The Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN) had accused Falana of acquiring the property seized by EFCC over pension fund scam.
Malami made this accusation when he appeared before the senate committee investigating the scandalous reinstatement of the former Chairman of the Presidential Task team on Pension Reform, Abdulrasheed Maina on Monday.
