EFCC Accuses Yahaya Bello’s Colleagues and Others of Shielding Him After an N80Bn Fr@ud


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission discosed that ex-governor Yahaya Bello, charged with an N80.2bn fraud, insulted the Nigerian Judicial system by failing to appear in court.

The EFCC acting Zonal Director, Benin Zone, Mr Effa Okim, who came to Asaba, told journalists that it was a familiarization visit.

On Wednesday, the agency expected the former Kogi state governor Yahaya Bello in court over a N80.2bn fraud accusation.

Moreover, it tried to arrest him without success.

So, based on his continuous failure to appear in court, the agency declared Yahaya wanted.

While the EFCC is looking for Yahaya, Nigerian Immigration has also placed the ex-governor on their watchlist.

Yahaya Bello Should Stop Disgracing Nigeria, Says EFCC Zonal Director

On Wednesday, the EFCC responded to questions about their failure to arrest Bello weeks after declaring him wanted.

In response, the EFCC zonal Director, Irate Okim, said that Yahaya Bello had the system shielding him.

Moreover, he considered the question the least in his expectations and a shame on the country.

Okim stated: “Is that a question I should answer alone? It is not me, it is the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he said.

Additionally, he explained that the EFCC has traced and exposed Yahaya’s political crime.

Also, the agency has requested his presence for further explanation, but he’s acting a drama.

Moreover, Okim pointed out that it’s unlikely that they can’t catch him.

However, the agency doesn’t need to do that since Okim has superiors who should call him to order.

According to the zonal director, they need to tell him that he is disgracing Nigeria.

He needs to explain himself to the EFCC like others have done.

“Where are the ministers? Where are Yahaya Bello’s colleagues, even in his hiding?” Okim asked.

The director added while Yahaya is hiding from the agency, he is eating and dining with other people in the country.

Additionally, he said that this problem impacts Nigeria’s image because children watch and learn from their parent’s behavior.
