The chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ola Olukoyede, has explained why operatives of the agency did not force their way into the house of the former governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello.

“We met over 30 armed policemen and 10 Counter Terrorist Unit personnel with Yahaya Bello. I went with my gallant men, over 50 of them. We would have exchanged fire, and there would have been casualties,” the EFCC boss said.

Olukoyede gave his explanation during a press briefing on Tuesday, days after the former governor was declared wanted.

Bello has been in hiding following a failed attempt by the anti-graft agency to arrest him at his Abuja residence last week.

The former Kogi State governor was said to have been whisked away by the current governor of the state, Ahmed Ododo.

He has since been on the watch list of security agencies in the country.
