The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has clarified why the six houses seized from the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose may never be come back to him.

In the recent politics and crime news healing for today, the EFCC said the houses – both in Lagos and Abuja – were appropriated by means of a court arrange issued on July 20 this year while it was examining the representative in connection to different offenses, including redirection of open assets.

It said it had in the reason for researching Fayose, found that the houses were gained through outsiders, who it had distinguished and had "continued against."

The EFCC said this in its counter affirmation to a movement by Fayose asking a Federal High Court in Abuja to empty the July 20 arrange for impermanent relinquishment of his homes.

The house include: four units of 4 rooms at Charlets 3, 4, 6 and 9 Plot 100 Tiamiyi Salvage Victoria Island, Lagos.

Others are: No: 44 Osun Crescent, Maitama, Abuja and Plot 1504 Yedseram Street, Maitama, Abuja.

The EFCC said, in its counter sworn statement, that its examination had uncovered that houses were obtained through organizations known as J.J. Specialized Service, Spotless Investment Limited and one Mrs. Moji Ladeji.

"A request was made by this court on the twentieth of July 2016 for break connection/relinquishment of the properties contained in this application for a time of 45 days.

"The request has since slipped by and the respondent, upon further examination, found the names through which the properties were gained and needed to continue against those names.

"The respondent (EFCC) re-joined the properties and reapplied to this respectable court for crisp request before Honorable Justice Okon Abang, which application was considered and allowed.

"A request of break or relinquishment is intended to safeguard the res (topic) pending examination or finish of trial.

"It is subsequently important to express that in perspective of the respondent's show EFCC1 (a duplicate of the request by Justice Abang), the request now being looked for by the candidate has as of now been overwhelming by time and occasion.

"The candidate's (Fayose's) application is in this way, an immaculate exercise in futility and a scholarly work out, which depends on nothing," the EFCC said.

The nonappearance of Fayose's lead legal advisor, Mike Ozekhome (SAN) kept the becoming aware of the Governor's application Monday.

Taking after the understanding of legal advisors to both sides to give back one more day for the hearing, Justice Dimgba suspended to December 19.
