After hours of being unable to secure their mission, the security operatives had reinforced with backup support from the Police and Department of State Services (DSS).

It was gathered that they were planning to forcefully arrest him before the arrival of Governor Ododo.

Ododo, who drove into Bello’s compound, departed after a while.

However, as he was leaving, reports filtered in that Yahaya Bello was in his vehicle, forcing security operatives who had been on standby for hours to open fire.
