Tinubu rebuffs ex-Gov Yahaya Bello, as AGF Fagbemi asks him to submit self to EFCC

The immediate past governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello’s call on President Bola Tinubu to intervene in his faceoff with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) might have been rebuffed as the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Prince Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), asked him to surrender himself to the anti-graft agency.

The AGF, in a statement he made available to newsmen on Thursday, also warned that the anti-graft agency should not be obstructed from performing its lawful duty.

He said: “The bizarre drama confronting the EFCC in the course of its efforts to perform its statutory duty,” with respect to the charge it filed against the erstwhile governor, has come to his notice, describing it as “a matter of very grave concern.”
