Ex-Kogi Gov Bello’s Arraignment Fails As EFCC Threatens To Use Military To Effect Arrest

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has threatened to use the military to force Yahaya Bello, the immediate past governor of Kogi State out of hiding.


Bello was supposed to be arraigned in court on Thursday but the arraignment couldn’t take place due to his absence in court, as a result, EFCC threatened to use the military to arrest him.


The plan was disclosed in court today by Counsel to EFCC, Mr Kemi Pinheiro, (SAN), saying the Commission will drag Bello before the court to face his trial, even if it means engaging the military to get him.


He said, “We may have to invite the military to move Yahaya Bello out of where he is hiding.
