While emotions can sometimes cloud judgment, it’s essential to examine the legal nuances in this situation

The discrepancy in how the EFCC handles cases like Yahaya Bello’s compared to others like Abdulaziz Yari and Bello Mattawale revolves around various factors, including legal procedures and specific court orders.

In February 2024, Yahaya Bello approached a high court in Kogi state and was granted a restraining order, you do not expect him submit himself to EFCC when the restraining order is still valid. EFCC has challenged the restraining order granted to Yahaya Bello in an appeal court whose judgment is expected to be delivered on Monday 22nd April 2024 but couldn’t wait hence they decided to lay siege on his residence.

In Yahaya Bello’s case, the restraining order issued by a federal high court in Kogi state adds a layer of complexity. Bello is well within his rights to adhere to the legal injunction until the court’s decision is overturned or modified. The EFCC’s decision to lay siege on his residence before the appeal court’s ruling raises concerns about the agency’s adherence to due process.

However, the issue extends beyond Bello’s case. Other individuals like Abdulaziz Yari and Bello Mattawale have also benefited from court orders restraining the EFCC from prosecuting them. The disparity in treatment raises questions about consistency and fairness within the EFCC’s operations.

So the question again, why Has EFCC Not Arrested Yari, Mattawale Despite Similar Court Order As Bello?

Ultimately, the EFCC’s actions should be guided by a commitment to upholding the rule of law and ensuring equal treatment under the legal system.
