His Whereabouts Are Not Hidden – Daniel Bwala Blasts EFCC For Declaring Yahaya Bello, Wanted

Former media aide to Atiku Abubakar, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Daniel Bwala, has faulted the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for declaring the immediate past governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, wanted.

Bwala said the EFCC had all the mechanisms and intelligence to arrest Bello.

Bwala made this known via his X account on Friday in reaction to the anti-graft agency declaring Bello wanted on Thursday following the failed attempt to effect his arrest at his Abuja residence.

Bello was whisked away by his successor, Ahmed Ododo, on Wednesday after hours of standoff between his security aides and operatives of the anti-graft commission.

The agency had declared him wanted for offences relating to economic and financial crimes to N80.2 billion.

Bwala wrote, “Unless EFCC and Yahaya Bello are both doing simulation for a movie about the agency and former governors, the press statement captioned “wanted” is not necessary.

“You were at his residence to effect arrest – you failed to apply ACJA or better still what you did to Okorocha at his residence.

“You knew who came and whisked him away – you allowed that. Both he and the incumbent governor have security details from police and SSS who must report activities, including the whereabouts of their VIPs, to their commands – meaning his whereabouts are not hidden.

“You knew Police and SSS have surveillance instruments for geo-tracking and geo-locating- yet you failed to approach. You are asking the general public to give you information about someone you have every reason to know his whereabouts. Please do your job without dramatising it.”
