Alleged N80.2 billion Fr@ud: EFCC declares Kogi ex-governor, Yahaya Bello, wanted

The EFCC has declared former Governor of Kogi State Yahaya Bello wanted.

The commission issued the public notice declaring Mr Bello wanted after he failed to appear for his arraignment on N80 billion money laundering charges scheduled to take place at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday.

Earlier on Wednesday, the commission had obtained a court warrant for his arrest, but could not execute it.

The commission made futile efforts to execute the arrest warrant at his residence in Abuja on Wednesday.

The anti-graft agency’s operatives which had arrived Mr Bello’s residence in Wuse Zone 4, Abuja, were obstructed by police personnel attached to the house.

The stand-off which lasted about seven hours after it was suspected that the incumbent Kogi State Governor Usman Ododo had sneeked Mr Bello out of the house in his official car.
