FG slams Gov Ododo for aiding Yahaya Bello evade arrest

The Attorney General of the Federation, Lateef Fagbemi, criticized Governor Usman Ododo of Kogi State for hindering the EFCC’s arrest of his predecessor, Yahaya Bello.

Fagbemi described it as “unacceptably disturbing” and emphasized that EFCC should not face obstacles when performing its duties.

During an attempted arrest at Bello’s Abuja residence, Ododo reportedly assisted in Bello’s escape from EFCC custody.

In a statement he personally signed, the AGF said: “A situation where public officials who are themselves subject of protection by law enforcement agents will set up a stratagem of obstruction to the civil and commendable efforts of the EFCC to perform its duty is to say the least, insufferably disquieting.

“A flight from the law does not resolve issues at stake but only exacerbates it.

“I state unequivocally that I stand for the rule of law and will promptly call EFCC and indeed any other agency to order when there is indication of any transgression of the fundamental rights of any Nigerian by any of the agencies but I also tenaciously hold the view that institutions of State should be allowed to function effectively and efficiently.”
