How Yahaya Bello Transfered $720K from State Funds To Pay For His Child’s School Fees – EFCC

Yahaya Bello, the former governor of Kogi state, is accused of transferring $720,000 from the state government’s account to a BDC and using some of it to prepay his child’s school tuition. Ola Olukoyede, the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, has disclosed this on Tuesday, April 23 

Speaking to reporters, the EFCC Chairman refuted the former Governor’s assertion that he is available for use by anybody. He went on to say that he called Yahaya Bello to invite him to be questioned, showing that he respected the man and that he had inherited the case upon taking office.
