Reno Omokri, a former presidential media aide, says the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is persecuting immediate past governor of Ekiti state Ayodele Fayose rather than prosecuting him.
The former presidential media aide made this comment on the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Thursday morning.
Omokri, who said President Muhammadu Buhari was using Ibrahim Magu’s “head to break a coconut (Fayose)”, reminded the EFCC Acting Chairman that no condition is permanent, making reference to Lawal Daura, who was removed as the Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS).
“May I remind Magu of Daura’s fate? No condition is permanent. Today, Buhari is using Magu’s head to break a coconut (Fayose).
“Tomorrow that head may be too busted to be of any use to Buhari,” Omokri wrote on Thursday.
What @officialEFCC is doing to @GovAyoFayose is persecution, not prosecution. May I remind Magu of Daura’s fate? No condition is permanent. Today, Buhari is using Magu’s head to break a coconut (Fayose). Tomorrow that head may be too busted to be of any use to Buhari #RenosDarts

Concise News reports that Fayose stormed the Abuja office of the anti-graft agency October 16, a day after the expiration of his tenure as Ekiti governor.
Fayose, who has been in the EFCC custody since then, is being grilled on his receipt from the Office of the former National Security Adviser (ONSA) the suspect sum of N1.3billion and $5.377million.
The EFCC maintains that the money totalling N4.6 billion was part of the funds stolen from defence vote.
However, Fayose had since denied all the allegations against him and asked the agency to take him to court.
