CRIME NEWS:Does EFCC Has the Right to Freeze Account of a Governor Covered by Immunity ?

It is no longer news that the personal accounts of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State and some of his associates have been frozen by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, which the governor
describes as unlawful. Fayose said he enjoys immunity as a sitting governor , urging the federal government to fight corruption within the ambit of the law.
EFCC has reacted to the claim that Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State cannot be investigated because of immunity currently being enjoyed by him.
The commission said that the immunity being enjoyed by any governor does not prevent the commission from investigating suspicious movements of money into his accounts.
QUESTIONS:
1. Is EFCC Violating Immunity Clause ? ***
2. Does EFCC Has the Right to Freeze Account of a Governor Covered by Immunity ?

The EFCC does not just act without carrying out thorough investigations, we acted based on the act establishing the Agency. If anyone felt we've acted against him wrongly, let the person approach the court."

"It is a fact that according to our constitution, certain category of public officials are immuned from prosecution while in office and they include the President, Vice President, Governors and deputy Governors.
Thus, we all recognize and accept the fact that these category of persons have immunity, but to transfer this immunity to their properties or holdings or bank accounts is what we have been unable to identify where it is stated in the constitution.
