This order from a court of coordinate jurisdiction was not set aside by Justice Taiwo.

In spite of this, the commission has taken immediate steps to appeal against the order by Justice Taiwo.

Recall that about 5 months ago, the EFCC froze Ayodele Fayose’s personal accounts while it investigated issues of money laundering and the Ekiti election fraud saga.

However, Justice Taiwo of the Federal high court in Ekiti state ordered on Tuesday that the EFCC should defrost the accounts because its actions did not follow due process.
