I was never invited, not running away – Yahaya Bello counters EFCC

Yahaya Bello, the ex-Governor of Kogi State, refuted claims that he is a fugitive.

He stated that the EFCC never summoned him for questioning, despite declaring him wanted.

Bello’s media officer, Ohiare Michael, issued a statement on his behalf, challenging the EFCC to prove that they had indeed invited him for questioning before declaring him wanted.

A statement by Michael reads partly: “Let it be known to all that Alhaji Yahaya Bello is not afraid of the EFCC, he is not a fugitive running from the law. All he demands is that the rule of law be respected.

“The EFCC stated that they invited Alhaji Yahaya Bello immediately after his tenure ended on the 27th of January 2024. We challenge the EFCC to publish a copy of the invitation delivered to Yahaya Bello.

“They should also tell Nigerians the date the alleged invitation was delivered and who it was delivered to. We are certain that the EFCC will not be able to produce any of the foregoing as to date, they have yet to invite Alhaji Yahaya Bello.
