Breaking: EFCC Declares Yahaya Bello Wanted. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has issued a circular declaring the immediate past governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, wanted. This announcement was conveyed through a circular released by the anti-graft agency and made available to journalists on Thursday.

“Former Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, is wanted by the EFCC for offences relating to economic and financial crimes to the tune of N80.2 bn.

“Anybody with information as to his whereabout should report immediately to the commission or the nearest police station,” the notice read.

The EFCC described Yahaya Bello as a 48-year-old Ebiraman, who is a native of Okene Local Government of Kogi State.
