Nigerians have taken to social media to express their displeasure over photos and videos of former governor, Ayo Fayose having a good time while supposedly on a medical trip abroad.
The former governor, who is being prosecuted for corruption charges by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC), had taken permission from a federal high court to go abroad for medical treatment.
However, Fayose had caused tongues wagging, after a video of him dancing Salsa on a cruise ship and photos of him relaxing at an unknown beach hit the web.
Reacting, many Nigerians speaking via Twitter accused the former governor of playing a fast one on the judiciary.

If fayose can be allowed to go for medical check abroad.Our poor prisoners in Jail should also be entitled to such benefits, afterall the Rule of Law is not applicable only to a priviledge few. Bail to the rich, bail to the poor. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
