EFCC withdraws appeal against order restraining Yahaya Bello’s arrest

Written by on April 25, 2024

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has filed a notice of withdrawal to discontinue an appeal against an order of a Kogi High Court restraining it from arresting the immediate past governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello.

In the notice filed on April 22, the EFCC says the withdrawal is predicated on the fact that events have overtaken the appeal.

The commission also admits that the appeal was filed out of the time allowed by law.

The EFCC is prosecuting Bello on 19 counts bordering on alleged money laundering, breach of trust, and misappropriation of funds to the tune of N80.2 billion.
