Ekiti State Government has vowed to go to the Abuja High Court to challenge the violation of fundamental human rights of its arrested two key officials by EFCC over alleged fiscal misconduct .

According to the Guardian on telephone , the state Attorney- General , Kolapo Kolade , said that the state government decided to approach the court for the enforcement of the fundamental rights of the officials being detained , adding that they were neither charged to court nor released unconditionally .

He added that the officials ought not to have been arrested in the first place because there was a pending court injunction barring them from doing so . “ Our return date for further hearing on the injunction is Thursday , October 12 , 2017 . The EFCC has not vacated the injunction, so they err in law by arresting the officer despite a subsisting order.

“ The date for definite hearing on the enforcement of fundamental rights is next week Tuesday . So , I can confirm to you that we are already in court . ” Ojo and Owolabi were arrested on September 28 over alleged misapplication of Federal Government’ s N9 . 3 billion bailout funds to pay backlog of salaries being owed workers .
