JUST IN: EFCC lays siege to arrest former Kogi governor Yahaya Bello in Abuja amid N84 billion fraud probe (Video)

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) agents have sealed off the residence of ex-Kogi State governor Yahaya Bello located at Benghazi Street, Wuse, Abuja.

According to reports the operatives of the anti-corruption commission were in the area intending to effect the arrest of the former governor, who had been having issues with EFCC even before he left office in February.

A reliable source disclosed on Wednesday the photo depicting EFCC operatives barricading the access road to Bello’s residence.

The source said: “EFCC barricades Bello’ house in Abuja. No movement in the area as EFCC barricaded the house. They are yet to gain access.”

While the exact motive behind the anti-graft agency’s raid on the former governor’s residence remains undisclosed, it could be linked to the ongoing ₦84 billion fraud case the EFCC is prosecuting against him.

Recall that the EFCC had filed charges against the former governor, accusing him of financial fraud amounting to ₦84 billion.

In an amended charge, the anti-graft commission accused Bello of diverting ₦80 billion of state funds in September 2015, four months before he took office.
