Yahaya Bello Reacts To EFCC Alleged Fraud

Following the charge to court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission of fraud against the Former Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, CON, according to Ohiare Michael, his Media officer has debunked the claims by the commission.

According to the said statement, which the Commission circulated widely as usual, Mr. Uwujaren, who is said to be a lawyer continues the EFCC’s ongoing unconscionable lies against the former Governor of Kogi State, by labelling him as a fugitive from justice in order to disingenuously justify their established and willful pattern of defying lawful court orders.

Contrary to Mr. Uwujaren’s claims, official records and court documents relating to their hounding of Alhaji Yahaya Bello establish a clear timeline of events.

The statement party reads; “Our attention has been drawn to a publication/press statement with the above title, issued by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday, 22nd April, 2024, and signed by Wilson Uwujaren, its Acting Director of Public Affairs.

In the said statement, which the Commission carefully circulated widely as usual, Mr. Uwujaren, who we have to believe is not a lawyer, continues the EFCC’s ongoing unconscionable lies against the former Governor of Kogi State, His Excellency, Yahaya Bello, CON, by labelling him as a fugitive from justice in order to disingenuously justify their established and willful pattern of defying lawful court orders.”

These documents are endorsed with dates and times of filing and payments, which are endorsed on court processes – all of which testify to the true sequence of events.

Further more, the EFCC claims to have invited Alhaji Yahaya Bello immediately after his tenure ended on January 27th, 2024.

We challenge the EFCC to produce a copy of this invitation, including the delivery date and the recipient’s name/endorsement.

We are confident they cannot provide this simple evidence.

“Contrary to Mr. Uwujaren’s claims, official records and court documents relating to their hounding of Alhaji Yahaya Bello establish a clear timeline of events. These documents are endorsed with dates and times of filing and payments, which are endorsed on court processes – all of which testify to the true sequence of events.”
