Court orders EFCC to release ex-Skye Bank Chairman, Ayeni

By - - [ ]


A Federal Capital Territory, FCT, High Court, in Maitama, has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to immediately release the detained Chairman of the defunct Skye Bank, Tunde Ayeni.

The court set aside an earlier order it granted the EFCC to detain Ayeni for 14 days.

The trial judge, Justice Yusuf Halilu, held today that the anti-graft agency had suppressed facts which misled the court into earlier granting the application, thereby, making the detention illegal.

The decision of the court followed an enforcement of fundamental rights suit filed by Ayeni, through his counsel, Ahmed Raji (SAN), seeking his release from the EFCC custody.

The anti-graft agency had, last week, approached the court through an ex-parte application, seeking a 14 day remand order of Ayeni.

The commission had premised the request for a remand on a need to investigate a petition submitted by the Office of the Vice President in respect of his alleged roles as the Chairman of the defunct Skye Bank.

The court then granted the said ex-parte application.

Ayeni had however, approached the Court to challenge the order and prayed that same be set aside.
