Sounds of gunshots rend the air as Governor Usman Ododo of Kogi State departed the residence of Yahaya Bello, his predecessor, on Wednesday.

Officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had stormed Bello’s residence to arrest him.

After hours of being unable to secure their mission, the security operatives had reinforced with backup support from the Police and Department of State Services (DSS).

Daily Trust understands that they were planning to forcefully arrest him before the arrival of Ododo.

Ododo, who drove into Bello’s compound, departed after a while.

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.

EFCC Officials leaving After Bello’s rescue by Giv Ododo

Protesters, journalists, onlookers and passers-by scampered for safety during the shootout.

After normalcy was restored, the security operatives took turns to leave the area that they had cordoned off for hours.
The anti-graft agency is yet to comment on the reason behind the siege. Attempts to reach EFCC spokesman, Dele Oyewale, proved futile as calls to his mobile phone were not answered. He had not replied a text message sent to him as at when filing this report.
However, there are indications that the move to arrest him is in connection with the alleged N84 billion fraud case against Bello by the anti-graft agency.
