Kogi Residents Urge EFCC to Proceed with Yahaya Bello's Prosecution

EFCC Chairman, Ola Olukoyede, has made a bold statement, vowing to resign if former Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, is not prosecuted for alleged involvement in a N80.2 billion fraud case. Speaking at the EFCC Headquarters in Abuja, Olukoyede emphasized his commitment to seeing Bello’s prosecution through to the end, despite any obstacles.

He stressed that anyone found to have obstructed Bello’s arrest would face legal consequences. The EFCC is pursuing charges against Bello, including money laundering, breach of trust, and misappropriation of funds amounting to N80.2 billion.

Olukoyede highlighted the importance of public support for the EFCC’s efforts, noting that the agency’s success is crucial for Nigeria’s integrity. Despite Bello’s absence in court, a copy of the charge sheet detailing the allegations was served to him and his lawyer, Abdulwahab Mohamed, following a court order by Justice Emeka Nwite of the Federal High Court in Abuja.
