How I Transported Billions From Akure To Fayose’s Hotel – Bullion Van Driver

A bullion van driver identified as Olaoluwa Omotoso, has confessed to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for conveying the N1.219 billion, which he allegedly delivered to the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, in the build-up to the June 2014 governorship election in the state, which Fayose won.
It can be recalled that the anti-graft agency is currently investigating the outspoken Ekiti state governor for allegedly receiving the N1.219 billion through the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) for his 2014 campaign, an amount said to be part of the N4.7 billion allegedly diverted from the ONSA under Col. Sambo Dasuki.
According to Punch Newspapers, the driver reportedly drove the bullion van to the Akure airport tarmac on June 17, 2014, to transport the N1.219 billion allegedly flown from Lagos by Obanikoro, adding that he made two separate trips to the airport because of the large volume of cash.
Omotosho also confessed to the EFCC that part of the money was taken to a bank in Alagbaka, Akure, on the instruction of Fayose’s friend, Agbele, while the remaining money was taken to Spotless Hotel, Ado Ekiti, which is owned by Fayose and his wife, Feyisetan.
An EFCC detective who spoke to a correspondent on Thursday, said, “Omotoso explained that on June 17, 2014, he was given a directive to go to the Akure airport to convey some funds. He said he went to the airport twice to move the money. He said some of the money was taken to a bank while he, along with Agbele, moved the remaining cash to Spotless Hotel, Ado Ekiti.
 
“He said the money was moved in three vehicles, including one bullion van and two Toyota Hilux vans. The two Toyota Hilux vans had some soldiers inside for security while Agbele was with him in the Hilux van.
 
“He said he did not know exactly how much was conveyed. He explained that Agbele held the keys to the vault in the bullion van. On getting to Spotless Hotel at night, they offloaded the cash and Agbele entered the vehicle to search and ensure that no money was left behind. Agbele then returned the keys and Omotoso drove off.”
