EFCC Chairman Vows to Resign if Yahaya Bello is Not Prosecuted.


The chairman of the economic and financial crimes commission (EFCC), Ola Olukoyede, has sworn to follow the prosecution of former Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello, to a logical conclusion.

In a chat with journalists at the commission’s headquarters in the Jabi area of Abuja on Tuesday, the anti-graft agency’s chairman vowed to resign if Bello is not prosecuted.

He also vowed that all those who obstructed the arrest of the former governor would be brought to book.

Olukoyede accused the embattled former governor of, among other things, withdrawing the sum of $720,000 (seven hundred and twenty thousand dollars) from the government account to a bureau de change (BDC) to pay for his child’s school fees in advance.

The EFCC is seeking to arraign bello on 19 counts bordering on alleged money laundering, breach of trust and misappropriation of funds to the tune of ₦80.2 billion.
