‘Where is Yahaya Bello?’ Nigerians tackle EFCC following disclaimer on former staff

Published

on

Nigerians on social media have called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to come clean on the whereabouts of former Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello who was declared wanted by the agency.

The questions arose following the anti-corruption agency’s disclaimer on one of its erring staff members, Iloka Chibuike Valentine.

In the disclaimer on Valentine, the Commission warned the public not to have any dealings with him as he has been dismissed though without stating the nature of offence that led to his dismissal.

The notice posted on the official X handle of the EFCC read:

“DISCLAIMER: ILOKA CHIBUIKE VALENTINE

“The public is advised not to deal with him as the Commission will not be liable for any activity traced to him.
#TowardsABetterNigeria
#SayNoToCorruption.”

But Netizens who disagreed with the agency questioned the rationale for the disclaimer notice on Valentine, wondering why the agency would dissipate energy on small offenders instead of going for the likes of Bello.

Others questioned the integrity of the EFCC Chairman, Ola Olukoyede, who had vowed to resign if he failed to prosecute the ex-Kogi governor.
