I Drove Poll Cash to Fayose’s Hotel – Driver

15 July 2016 National

A bullion van driver Olaoluwa Omotoso has confessed to conveying the N1.219bn, which the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission alleged was delivered to the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, in the build-up to the June 2014 governorship election in the state.

EFCC investigations reveal that the N4.7bn was paid into a bank account of Sylvan McNamara, a company in which the sons of a former Minister of State for Defense, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, are said to be directors.

Report says Omotoso told EFCC directives that he made two separate trips to the airport because of the large volume of cash as he claimed to have driven the bullion van to the Akure airport tarmac on June 17, 2014 to transport the N1.219bn allegedly flown from Lagos by Obanikoro.
