EFCC has charged former Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello with corruption, a few days after he completed his tenure, he was charged with corruption involving diversion of over N80 billion.

Mr Bello handed over to his successor, Usman Ododo, after eight years in office on 27 January and, days later, was charged by the EFCC.

The anti-graft agency did not bother to file a fresh case in court. It simply amended existing charges in which his nephew and an associate were accused of diverting Kogi State funds, to add the former governor as a co-defendant with some few additional counts.

Mr Bello in the amended case was accused of converting the total sum of N80.2 billion (N80,246,470,089.88) belonging to Kogi State Government to personal use. An alleged co-conspirator, Abdulsalami Hud (Kogi State Government House Cashier) was described as being at large.
