Court order can’t prevent EFCC from arresting, prosecuting Yahaya Bello, Falana clarifies

Human Rights lawyer, Femi Falana SAN, yesterday declared that no court of law can prevent the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), from prosecuting the immediate past former governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, over alleged money laundering to the tune of N80,246,470,088.88

Falana’s declaration was in reaction to Bello’s statement that the EFCC had disobeyed a court order by attempting to arrest him to answer the charge for money laundering.

In a statement issued by the legal luminary he said the move by the EFCC was tenable as Bello had lost his immunity from arrest and prosecution.
