Contrary to assertions by the EFCC, Bello asserted that he had never received any invitation for questioning from the anti-corruption agency. He criticized the EFCC’s declaration of him as wanted without prior invitation, calling for transparency and accountability in the process.

In a statement, Michael highlighted Yahaya Bello’s unwavering resolve against any wrongdoing and his readiness to cooperate with lawful procedures. He challenged the EFCC to publish any purported invitation sent to Bello after his tenure ended in January 2024, urging the agency to provide concrete evidence of their claims.

The statement by Michael reads partly: “Let it be known to all that Alhaji Yahaya Bello is not afraid of the EFCC, he is not a fugitive running from the law. All he demands is that the rule of law be respected.

“The EFCC stated that they invited Alhaji Yahaya Bello immediately after his tenure ended on the 27th of January 2024. We challenge the EFCC to publish a copy of the invitation delivered to Yahaya Bello.

They should also tell Nigerians the date the alleged invitation was delivered and who it was delivered to. We are certain that the EFCC will not be able to produce any of the foregoing as to date, they have yet to invite Alhaji Yahaya Bello.

“Indeed, just about the end of his administration, several online news sites published that the EFCC would arrest the Governor as soon as he handed over power to his successor as they intended to charge him for alleged crimes committed as Governor of Kogi State.”CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
