The lead judge to the three-man appeal court panel, Honourable Justice J.SIkeyegha directed the freezing of the account of Fayose forthwith.

Meanwhile, had reported that minister of solid mineral development Kayode Fayemi declared that Fayose and his jokes will soon end in jail.

Fayemi responded to the issues raised against him by Fayose saying that the governor is cooking up a white paper that he can shop around with a view to getting him banned from public office.

He said: ''I am always unequivocal in my view about him as a misfit and a rabble-rouser who has not learnt anything from his previous travails after being thrown out of office in 2006.''

''So, how do I respond to something I regard as illegal and unconstitutional by a governor who I have the least regard for? What Ayo Fayose set up was a kangaroo panel with a clear mandate to work to a predetermined answer. '

'Try and remember the genesis of the panel. His rubber stamp House of Assembly passed a resolution that he should probe Fayemi over alleged stealing of N852 million from SUBEB and for giving President Buhari N1.5 billion of Ekiti money.''
