EFCC threatens military action over Yahaya Bello’s evasion of arrest order



Yahaya Bello and Ali Bello

In a courtroom showdown at the Federal High Court in Abuja, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) issued a stern ultimatum in its pursuit of former Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello.

EFCC’s legal representative, Kemi Pinheiro (SAN), delivered a chilling warning, stating, “We know that he is being kept in his successor’s house.

Immunity is not attached to a home but to a person.”

Pinheiro’s declaration, echoing through the courtroom, underscored the agency’s uncompromising stance in its bid to apprehend Bello, who faces accusations of corruption during his tenure.

The tense exchange highlights the escalating tensions between the EFCC and Bello’s camp, particularly his alleged evasion of arrest with the alleged assistance of his successor, Usman Ododo.

The courtroom drama offers a glimpse into the intricate legal intricacies surrounding the immunity granted to former public officials in Nigeria.

As the EFCC intensifies its efforts to enforce the arrest order, the nation awaits with anticipation, poised for the resolution of this high-stakes legal standoff.
