Again, Fayose gets court’s permission for medical trip abroad

Ekiti Governor Ayodele Fayose

The Federal High Court in Lagos on Monday granted permission to former governor of Ekiti State Ayo Fayose to travel abroad for further medical treatment.

Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke granted permission following an application by Fayose’s counsel Ola Olanipekun.

Mr Fayose had through his counsel sought an order of the court granting him leave “to travel outside Nigeria for further medical examination, diagnosis, treatment and therapeutics, as the exigency of his health demands, on dates which shall not coincide with or obstruct any date of the trial in this case.”

The judge ruled that Fayose must be in court on the next adjourned dates which are March 18 and 19, 2021.

Fayose is standing trial for alleged involvement in N2.2 billion fraud.
