A former governor of Ekiti State, Mr Ayo Fayose, was yesterday docked at the state High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti over alleged N900 million indebtedness to his former Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Owoseni Ajayi.

Ajayi was Fayose’s Attorney General during his first and second terms as Ekiti governor between 2003-2006 and 2014-2018.

He filed the suit on 17th December 2018. 

In the suit with registration number HAD/113/2018, Ajayi said he handled a total of 18 cases through his law chambers for the former governor, with each costing a sum of N50 million as the professional fees, which he alleged were not paid for.

At yesterday’s proceeding, Ajayi was represented by Barrister Bayo Idowu, while the former governor was represented by his counsel, Ahmed Tafa.

The matter presided over by Justice L.O. Ogundana, was adjourned to December 13, 2022, when both parties would adopt their final replies and written addresses.
