EFCC Says Former Governor Yahaya Bello Is Wanted for N80 Billion Fraud

Alhaji Yahaya Bello, the former governor of Kogi state, has been listed as wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for suspected financial crimes totaling N80 billion.

This occurs just 24 hours after it was claimed that the former governor, acting on the advice of his replacement, Governor Usman Ododo, managed to avoid being arrested by the EFCC at his Abuja home. Recall that the former governor was brought before Justice James Omotosho of the federal high court in Abuja by the anti-graft agency, together with his nephew Ali and a woman named Dauda Sulaiman.

In March 2024, the EFCC modified its accusations against Bello and associates on a purported N84 billion money laundering scheme. A statement was released by the former governor’s media office in response to the news. The office summoned President Bola Tinubu to tell the EFCC to stop its actions and denounced the anti-graft agency’s. They stated that the court injunction issued on February 9, 2024, by the Kogi State High Court in Lokoja in the suit number HCL/68M/2024 between Yahaya Bello and the EFCC, was violated by the EFCC agents’ presence at the former governor’s home.
