EFCC addresses Yahaya Bello’s protesters

An EFCC official who received the protesters’ petition said the anti-graft agency was not interested in renting the crowd and that the former governor was only needed to answer questions about their investigation so far.

Last month, the EFCC operatives were obstructed by some police officers and supporters of the former governor as the anti-graft agency laid siege at the residence of Yahaya Bello at Zone 4 in Abuja in a bid to arrest him.

For over 10 hours, the former governor, popularly referred to as the “White Lion,” could not leave his house until the arrival of his successor, Ahmed Usman Ododo, who allegedly aided Bello’s escape.

EFCC declares Yahaya Bello wanted

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.

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.
