The Kogi governor is opposed to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arresting Bello.

Recall that about a month ago, the EFCC named Bello in an amended money laundering charge.

Former Governor Bello is among the defendants in a 17-count amended charge. The EFCC alleged that the suspects diverted about N100 billion belonging to the Kogi government.

Responding, the Kogi government insisted that the funds belonged to the state and were not missing.
