Fayose was arraigned before a Federal High sitting in Lagos last week on an 11 count charge of conspiracy and money laundering amounting to N2.2 billion.

He was granted bail in the sum of N50 million after he pleaded not guilty to the allegation contained in the charge against him.

Fayose’s lawyer, Mr. Mike Ezekhome, SAN, confirmed his release saying that his client is in high spirit.

His words: “I was with Fayose today (yesterday) and I can confirm to you that all the conditions set for his bail has been met. I can tell you that he is in high spirit. He promised me that he will continue to fight on behalf of the Nigerian masses.

“He vowed that he will fight impunity in this government to a standstill. He affirmed to me that he is stronger now and more determined to fight lawlessness. He asked me to get it out there that he is not one of those that can be intimidated with the EFCC.”

Fayose’s spokesperson, Mr. Lere Olayinka, also confirmed his boss release via his twitter handle.

Olayinka said the former governor will return to court on November 16.
