Manipulated image of Yahaya Bello dressed as female

Conducting a Google Reverse Image Search on the trending photo revealed that the original photo was that of the late wife of Ken Nnamani, the former Senate president, Jane Nnamani, which was shared in a blog on May 7, 2023.

It was also gathered that the image was used to announce the death of Jane Nnamani in 2023.

The viral image of Yahaya Bello began to circulate on WhatsApp groups soon after the anti-graft EFCC declared him wanted.

Has Yahaya Bello fled Nigeria?

Therefore, it was concluded that the image used to claim that the former governor of Kogi state dressed in female attire was a manipulated photo of the late wife of the former president of the Nigeria Senate.

The anti-graft agency is moving to prosecute the former governor on 19 charges of money laundering, breach of trust, and misappropriation of funds worth N80.2 billion.

The EFCC declared Bello a wanted person on Thursday, April 18. The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and the Department of State Service (DSS) have also placed the former governor on their watchlist.
