OSUN DEFENDER reported how Olukoyede said he would resign if Yahaya Bello was not eventually prosecuted for the fraud allegations against him.

Documents obtained by SaharaReporters had shown that Governor Bello through his nephew, Mr Ali Bello had entered an agreement with the school to pay tuition for his four children up to graduation in advance to secure their future.

The agreement was signed and executed on August 23, 2021. Following the execution of the agreement, a total of $845.852.84 was paid into the school account in varied installments.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had also declared Yahaya Bello, wanted for offences relating to economic and financial crimes to the tune of N80.2 billion in April.

But one month after this announcement, the whereabouts of Bello are still unknown and the anti-corruption agency has not released any information about his prosecution.

The long silence on the case has made Nigerians doubt the competency of EFCC and urged the Chairman to resign for failing to honour his words.

An X user, MC Ugwummadu wrote: “Since Yahaya Bello is no longer in the wanted list of the EFCC, the chairman should just keep his promise and resign Honourably.

“My honest question is: why the drama of his arrest when it’s obvious it was all a ruse? What’s the threat meant to distract gullible Nigerians?”

“When are you going to parade the very man on your wanted list who stole billions from the coffers of Kogi state? Is his whereabouts not known to you guys yet despite all the resources available to locate him ?? No updates or whatsoever regarding his search and eventual arrest,” another user, Dele wrote.
