The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared the immediate past governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, wanted.

Bello was declared wanted for offences relating to economic and financial crimes.

In a notice posted on the commission’s official social media platforms on Thursday, it said: “Former Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, is wanted by the EFCC for offences relating to economic and financial crimes to the tune of N80.2 bn.

“Anybody with information as to his whereabout should report immediately to the commission or the nearest police station.”

Daily Trust had reported how the anti-graft agency laid siege to the residence of Bello in Wuse Zone 4, Abuja, on Wednesday.

The operatives, who stormed Bello’s residence in dozens, cordoned off Benghazi Street, where the residence of Bello is.

After waiting for hours without being able to arrest Bello, the anti-graft agency reinforced in its bid to forcefully arrest the ex-governor the way a former governor of Imo, Rochas Okorocha, was arrested a few years ago.

They were planning to forcefully arrest him before the arrival of Governor Usman Ododo of Kogi State.

Ododo, who drove into Bello’s compound, departed after some hours.

However, as he was leaving, reports filtered in that Bello was in his vehicle, forcing security operatives who had been on standby for hours to open fire.

The anti-graft agency had subsequently vowed to punish anyone obstructing justice.
