Yahaya Bello Responds To EFCC’s Allegations On $720k School Fees Payment

Published by admin on

Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has finally responded to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over allegations of paying $720,000 in school fees for his children. The EFCC had accused Bello of using a proxy to pay the said amount for his children’s tuition fees at a foreign university.

In a statement released by his spokesperson, Bello denied the allegations, stating that the EFCC’s claims were “baseless and politically motivated”. He explained that the said payment was made by a family friend, who had been known to him for over 20 years, and not by any proxy as alleged by the EFCC.

Bello also accused the EFCC of witch-hunting and attempting to tarnish his image, stating that he had declared all his assets and those of his family members in accordance with the law. He challenged the EFCC to provide evidence of any wrongdoing or face legal action.

The EFCC had been investigating Bello over allegations of money laundering and corruption, and the latest development is seen as a further escalation of the ongoing battle between the governor and the anti-graft agency.
