PDP Chieftain Discloses Yahaya Bello’s Whereabouts Amid EFCC Probe

Lokoja, Kogi state – A human rights activist and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) member, Usman Austin Okai, has said Yahaya Bello is hiding in the Kogi government house.

NATURENEX reports that Bello, the immediate past governor of Kogi state, is wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for alleged fraud.

The chairman of the EFCC, Ola Olukoyede, claimed that an investigation by the anti-graft agency revealed that the embattled former governor withdrew $720,000 from the state’s coffers to pay his child’s school fees.

Bello denied the allegation and accused Olukoyede of lying.

Since a failed attempt to arrest him in Abuja, the present location of the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain remains a mystery.

In a statement on Friday, June 21, the PDP chieftain alleged that Ododo played a role in “helping Bello evade the EFCC by whisking him away from Benghazi Street Zone 4 in Abuja.”

The Nigerian Tribune noted Okai’s revelation.

The statement partly reads:

“It is widely believed that Bello is currently hiding in the Kogi state government house, where he is being protected by the governor.

“The truth remains that Ododo is allegedly being directed by Yahaya Bello from a hidden location.”
