EFCC operatives end siege as Ododo ‘rescues’ Yahaya Bello

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have left the Abuja residence of Yahaya Bello, former governor of Kogi state.

The EFCC operatives had earlier restricted movement in and around Bello’s house situated on Benghazi street, Wuse Zone 4.

After a few hours, Usman Ododo, governor of Kogi, arrived at Bello’s residence and was later seen leaving with his predecessor.

An EFCC official could be overheard speaking with someone suspected to be his superior on the phone, saying Bello was inside Ododo’s car that departed.


Shortly after Ododo departed from Bello’s residence, the EFCC personnel left the house.

The development comes about a month after the EFCC named Bello in an amended money laundering charge filed against Alli Bello, chief of staff to the incumbent governor of Kogi.

Ali, and one Daudu Suleiman, are the two defendants in the 17-count amended charge.


The EFCC alleged that the suspects diverted about N100 billion belonging to the Kogi government.

Responding to the EFCC charge, the Kogi government said funds belonging to the state did not go missing under the former governor.
