Alleged N80bn Fraud: Yahaya Bello Must Fce Full Wrath of Law, Northern Youth Declares

Thee Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been urged to ensure that former Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, is brought to face full wrath of the law over the allegations of embezzling N82billion belonging to the state.

The Northern Ethnic Youth Group Assembly, NEYGA, in a statement signed by its spokesperson, Ibrahim Dan-Musa, and sent to journalists in Abuja, said that the EFCC is performing a great service to the nation by pursuing the perpetrators of national economic sabotage, such as Yahaya Bello.

Mr Ibrahim expressed hope that those involved in diverting public funds to finance elections would be punished to deter others in the future.

The group stated that the anti-corruption stance of the present administration would ensure that such perfidy and misuse of funds meant for the country’s development by politicians in power corridors would not recur.

The statement urged the EFCC to leave no stone unturned in discouraging and ensuring that those in custody of public funds do not dip their hands into the till for personal gain.

“As Northerners, we commend the EFCC for taking necessary steps in accordance with the law to ensure that Yahaya Bello faces justice.

“He is exceedingly wealthy now and will do everything to launch a campaign of calumny against the leadership of the EFCC. We are prepared to mobilize millions across the northern states in a peaceful protest in support of the EFCC.

“We call on the EFCC not to be discouraged by sponsored campaigns of calumny by hired protesters who are jobless, and some unprofessional analysts who are only capitalizing on this situation to make more money from Yahaya Bello, who is spending looted resources from Kogi.”
