From Fred Itua, Abuja

Less than one week after the embattled immediate-past governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello met with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Wednesday morning, laid a siege to his house, located at Wuse Zone 4, Abuja

The former governor has been at loggerheads with the EFCC over his multi-billion naira fraud case leveled against him by the anti-graft agency.

Daily Sun had exclusively reported last week that EFCC had gotten the nod of President Tinubu and the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Lateef Olasunkanmi Fagbemi to prosecute Bello.

Bello, alongside his nephew and other former government officials, allegedly siphoned over N80 billion while he held sway as governor.

Over 140 properties have also been linked to the embattled former governor, both in Nigeria and abroad. His media aide, Mohammed Onogwu didn’t respond to calls or messages to confirm the latest development.
