According to the report by Punch on Sunday, the media mogul said that the EFCC had misfired in its attempt to prosecute the former Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, and added that the anti-graft agency failed to carry out due diligence because it was in a hurry to prosecute the former governor.

It should be recalled that a few weeks ago, the EFCC had stormed Yahaya Bello’s residence in Abuja to arrest over alleged misappropriation of funds while in office, but the attempt was unsuccessful.

While speaking to newsmen, the EFCC boss, Olukoyede, had claimed that just before he left office, Yahaya Bello took money from the Kogi State Government, exchanged it into dollars through the Bureau De Change, and used it to pay for his children’s school fees.

Speaking during an Instagram Live Show, Momodu said that he watched the EFCC Chairman on television some days ago, and that he was almost crying because of how he went on and on about Yahaya Bello’s case.

He said, “When they brought in the new Chairman, I thought, oh, you will have the benefit of learning from your predecessors. All of them were booted out ignominiously, and if I were in the shoes of the current chairman, what I would simply do is to make sure I do my job as meticulously, as professionally, as efficiently, as possible. And, you will never go wrong if you obey the rule of law.

“I watched the EFCC Chairman, I think either last week or the week before the last, I was almost crying because of the way he was going on and on. If I don’t do this… spitting fire and all… you don’t have to do media trial.”

He added that being a member of the opposition party does not mean he should be blinded by hatred for Yahaya Bello. He however added that even though Nigeria’s justice system is not perfect, the rule of law must be obeyed. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
