Breaking: Yahaya Bello Absent As Court Adjourns, EFCC Mulls Military’s Help To Fish Him Out



Breaking: EFCC Secures Warrant To Arrest Yahaya Bello

The former Kogi State governor was absent from court for his arraignment on Thursday.

Justice Emeka Nwite of the Federal High Court Abuja has adjourned the suit instituted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), against the immediate past Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, to April 23rd.

The adjournment is for substituted service and possible arraignment of Bello for alleged N84bn money laundering.

At the resumed sitting, Counsel for the EFCC, Kemi Phinro, told the court that the immediate past governor of Kogi State was absent from court for his arraignment because he was being protected by someone with immunity.

Phinro said the former governor was whisked out of his Abuja residence by the same person with immunity.

Phinro said the anti-graft agency might seek the help of the military to fish him out.
