The governor, in a letter to the EFCC dated October 10, 2018, said
specifically that the commission was doing everything possible to induce
and or coerce Mr Maroun Azeez Mecheleb  to make false statement to

implicate me when he appears in your office at noon today (11/10/2018).

Governor Fayose said “a situation where a prospective witness is being
induced or coerced to change his earlier statement by the Operatives of the
Commission is nothing but persecution.”

He however said the seeming bias of the anti graft commission
notwithstanding, he will be at its Abuja office on October 16, 2018 as
earlier promised.

The letter with reference number EK/Gov1/28/Vol1/13 read; “I have always
been made to know that the statutory functions and powers of your
Commission are neither to persecute nor compromise the integrity of your
Commission.

“Permit me to stress that, a situation where a prospective witness is being
induced or coerced to change his earlier statement by the Operatives of the
Commission is nothing but persecution.

“Therefore, it is important to bring to your notice that I am aware of your
desperate efforts in the last 48 hours to procure evidence by hook or crook
to ‘nail’ me.

“Specifically, I know as a fact that your Commission has been doing
everything possible to induce and or coerce Mr Maroun Azeez Mecheleb Sam to
make false statement to implicate me (when he appears in your office at
noon today 11/10/2018) as a foundation for you to concoct trumped up

charges against me notwithstanding the fact that the said Mr. Maroun who
only returned to Nigeria in the last three weeks had earlier made two
statements in Charge No. FRN vs.  Abiodun Agbele and  Ors.  Copies
extracted from the earlier proof of evidence are attached for ease of
reference.

“Regardless, I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, 16th October 2018.”
