Yahaya Bello Hiding in Kogi Govt House- Austin Okhai

Mr. Austin Okhai, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has revealed that embattled former governor of Kogi State, Mr. Yahaya Bello has been hiding at the Government House, Lokoja since April.

Recall that Bello escaped arrest in Abuja with alleged assistance from his political godson, the current governor of the state, Mr. Usman Ododo. Since Bello’s escape, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared the former governor wanted.

Okhai who contested to represent Dekina/Bassa Federal Constituency in a statement on Friday said that “It is widely believed that Bello is currently hiding in the Kogi State Government House, where he is being protected by Governor Usman Ododo.

“The truth remains that Ododo is allegedly being directed by Yahaya Bello from a hidden location.”

Mr. Okai maintained that Governor Ododo is currently “helping Bello evade the EFCC by whisking him away from Benghazi Street Zone 4 in Abuja.”

Yahaya Bello is wanted according to EFCC for allegedly misappropriating Kogi State funds of up to N82 billion.
