Gov Ododo didn’t help Yahaya Bello escape EFCC arrest — Commissioner, Fanwo

Kogi State Commissioner for Information, Kingsley Fanwo, has claimed that Governor Usman Ododo did not shield ex-Governor Yahaya Bello from arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Fanwo stated this while speaking on Channels Television on Friday.

“Governor Ododo did not assist in Bello’s departure from his residence; the EFCC’s claims are misinformation aimed at furthering their objectives.

“Bello is not evading anyone; the existing court injunction protects his fundamental rights,” he said.

Fanwo also insisted that a state high court injunction protects Bello from harassment by the EFCC.

He noted that Governor Ododo remains a law-abiding leader who respects the rule of law and the Constitution of Nigeria.

DAILY POST reported that EFCC operatives had laid a siege at Bello’s house in Abuja.

But Ododo arrived at the residence and hours after he drove out, there were reports that Bello snuck out with him.

The EFCC has since declared Bello wanted.

He has also been placed on a security watchlist by the federal government.
