Yahaya Bello Demanded EFCC To Interrogate Him In His Village – EFCC Chairman


Apr 24, 2024

EFCC Chairman, Ola Olukoyede, has revealed that he personally called former Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello to invite him for questioning over corruption allegations, showcasing the agency’s commitment to transparency and accountability. However, Bello declined, citing concerns about journalists allegedly planted by a senator at the EFCC office, a claim that has not been verified. Instead, he requested that EFCC officials come to his village to interrogate him, a unusual request that raised eyebrows.

Olukoyede emphasized that the EFCC followed the law in attempting to arrest Bello at his residence, adhering to due process and respecting his rights as a citizen. He pointed out that he inherited the case, which predates his tenure, and that it is essential to bring closure and justice to the matter. He questioned why Bello has not submitted himself to the law, like any other citizen, and warned that anyone involved in obstructing the arrest will face the full wrath of the law, including legal and administrative consequences.

This development highlights the ongoing efforts of the EFCC to combat corruption and the sometimes complex and challenging process of bringing high-profile individuals to justice. The agency’s commitment to upholding the law and ensuring accountability is evident in Olukoyede’s statements, and it remains to be seen how this situation will unfold. The public is watching closely, and many are calling for Bello to cooperate with the investigation and clear his name if he is innocent. The EFCC’s determination to see this case through demonstrates its dedication to fighting corruption and promoting good governance in Nigeria.
