A senior advocate of Nigeria, Olisa Agbakogba, has accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of harassing Kogi government with media trial.
EFCC has arraigned Ali Bello, a nephew to Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello and one Dauda Sulaiman for fraudulently withdrawing N10bn from the state's treasury.
Kogi government has debunked an allegation of money laundering levelled against it by the EFCC, saying the anti-graft agency is on a mission to embarrass them.
