EFCC seals off Yahaya Bello’s residence in Abuja

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has sealed off the Abuja residence of former Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello.

Reports indicated that the EFCC’s move is related to an ongoing fraud case against Bello that involves a sum of N84 billion.

There is currently no movement in and around the house, which is located at Benghazi Street, Wuse Zone 4.

Although the Former Governor recently met with President Bola Tinubu at the State House, it is unclear why the EFCC has raided his residence.
