Shettima condemned what he perceived as personal vendettas influencing actions against Bello, advocating for adherence to proper legal procedures. He cautioned against preemptive judgment outside of formal legal channels, urging the EFCC Chairman to prioritize evidence-based investigations over emotional reactions.

In an interview with The Sun, Shettima remarked, ”Yahaya Bello is a Citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and should be treated according to the provisions of the law. Here is not banana republic where anything goes unchallenged. You cannot just do anything you want to do to him because of personal grudges. Why don’t they allow the court to decide first before doing what they are doing? What they are doing has shown that they are biased already and this is bad.

You should not do media trial and conviction when the person is still innocent before the court. Nobody is above the law, I am happy he has filed a legal suit against the EFCC. Even when you feel or know that a person or individual committed a certain offense, it is not in your place to do the job of the Judge. You cannot be a judge in your own case, I expect the EFCC Chairman who is a lawyer to know better. You cannot be emotional in matters of the law; you simply need evidence beyond reasonable doubt. EFCC Chairman is not above the law or a tin god, he should also subject himself to obeying the law.”CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
