EFCC withdraws appeal against Yahaya Bello




The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has decided to withdraw its application at the Court of Appeal against the embattled former Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello.

The anti-graft agency has filed an application against an order from the High Court Holden in Kogi State which restrained the EFCC from arresting the former Governor who is currently at large.

The EFCC said the notice of withdrawal is predicated on the fact that the application filed has been overtaken by the decision of the Kogi State High Court.

This was made known in court application filed on Wednesday at the Court of Appeal Abuja judicial division by J. S. Okutepa, SAN and others on behalf of the Commission.

The commission said the subject of the appeal has been determined by the Kogi High Court Judge, Justice Jamil J. on April 17, 2024.

The EFCC, therefore, told the court that the notice of appeal was filed out of time and prayed that the appeal be struck out for being filed out of time and incompetent.

Recall that the EFCC, on Tuesday stepped up its bid to prosecute the ex-Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello for alleged misappropriation of public funds.
