The Court of Appeal Abuja yesterday failed to sit to hear the appeal lodged by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) against the order of a High Court restraining the anti-graft agency from arresting the immediate past Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Kogi court, in a ruling on April 17, restrained the EFCC from arresting, detaining and prosecuting Bello. The court gave the order in a two-hour judgment delivered on Wednesday.

The judgment coincided with the “siege’ invasion of Bello’s home in Abuja by EFCC operatives in a bid to arrest him. The EFCC is seeking to arraign the former governor on 19 counts bordering on alleged money laundering, breach of trust and misappropriation of funds to the tune of N80.2 billion.

The agency wanting Bello to face the law for his alleged crime, approached the Federal High Court in Abuja on the same day to get an arrest warrant.

This is a big shame. Do we still need courts in Nigeria?
