In a bid to bring former Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, to justice over allegations of involvement in an N80.2 billion fraud saga, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has called for collaborative efforts.

Despite repeated summonses and a declaration of Bello as wanted, he has continued to evade court proceedings, prompting the EFCC to escalate its efforts.

Expressing concern over the prolonged evasion tactics employed by Bello, the EFCC emphasized the importance of cooperation from all stakeholders to ensure accountability and uphold the rule of law.

The commission highlighted the significance of collective action in apprehending individuals implicated in financial crimes, stressing that Bello’s evasion not only undermines the legal process but also hampers efforts to combat corruption.
