Yahaya Bello Demands Transfer Of N83 Billion Fraud Case To Kogi State

Former Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, has requested the transfer of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) case against him to Kogi State.

Bello’s legal team argues that since the alleged offence was committed during his tenure as governor, it is only fitting for the case to be heard in Kogi State.

The former governor is expected to be arraigned at the Federal High Court in Abuja, today, on alleged fraud charges totalling N82 billion.

The EFCC will be prosecuting the case on behalf of the federal government.

The arraignment is listed as number 7 on Justice Emeka Nwite’s cause list.

However, it remains uncertain whether Bello will appear in court as promised.
