Yahaya Bello Absent in Court, EFCC Mulls Military’s Help to Fish Him Out

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 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.
