The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared the immediate past governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, wanted.

According to a statement on its official Facebook, Thursday, EFCC declared Bello wanted for offences relating to economic and financial crimes.

“Former Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, is wanted by the EFCC for offences relating to economic and financial crimes to the tune of N80.2 billion.

“Anybody with information as to his whereabout should report immediately to the commission or the nearest police station,” the EFCC said. 

Vanguard reported on Wednesday that the anti-graft agency’s officials besieged the former governor’s residence in Abuja to effect his residence.

Governor Ahmed Usman Ododo came with his security operatives and whisked him away from the grasp of the EFCC.
