The Ekiti State House of Assembly has sent a letter of protest to the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, over the arrest and detention of the State Commissioner for Finance, Chief Toyin Ojo, and the Accountant General, Mrs. Yemi Owolabi.

In the letter, the assembly described the arrests of Ojo and Owolabi as premeditated, malicious, politically-motivated, contemptuous and unconstitutional in all ramifications.

The House said the arrests smacked of gangsterism by an agency that derived its powers from the constitution but acting in clear contempt of the rule of law.

The assembly also accused Magu and the commission of disobedience to court orders.
