Governor Usman Ododo of Kogi State has visited his predecessor, Yahaya Bello.

This comes amidst a heavy security crackdown on Bello’s Abuja home.

Ododo arrived at the Abuja residence of Bello, located at Benghazi Street, Wuse Zone 4, at about 2:45 pm.

He was accompanied by several security operatives and youth supporters protesting against the siege to the former governor’s home.

Dozens of operatives of the EFCC had cordoned off the street where the Abuja residence of the former governor of Kogi is.

Our correspondent, who visited the street, reports that the stern-looking operatives of the anti-graft agency did not allow movement in and out of the street.

Daily Trust could not immediately ascertain their presence on the street but a highly-placed official of the EFCC confided in our correspondent that the operation was being carried out to arrest the former governor.

When asked further why the operatives wanted to arrest the former governor, the official, who didn’t want to be quoted moved away from our correspondent.

It was learnt that the operatives’ presence was not unconnected with the N84 billion fraud case against Yahaya which the anti-graft agency is currently prosecuting.
