EFCC accuses colleagues and others of shielding Yahaya Bello

Written by on June 13, 2024

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC is saying that its failure to arrest ex-Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, who is accused of N80.2 billion fraud, had ridiculed the Nigerian justice system and all authorities including the commission by failing to present himself for trial in court.

The EFCC acting Zonal Director, Benin Zonal Command, Mr. Effa Okim, made this known during a familiarization visit to the Delta State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists in Asaba, Delta State capital.

The EFCC is having a running legal battle with Bello over alleged N80.2 billion fraud.

Following a failed attempt to arrest him and his repeated absence from court for his arraignment, the EFCC declared Bello wanted, while the Nigerian Immigration also placed the governor on a watchlist.
