Segun Arinze Urges EFCC to Ensure Due Process in Yahaya Bello’s Prosecution


Nollywood actor Segun Arinze has called upon the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to uphold due process in the prosecution of the immediate past Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello.

The EFCC is currently prosecuting Bello, alongside his nephew Ali Bello, Dauda Suleiman, and Abdulsalam Hudu on a 19-count charge related to money laundering amounting to N80 billion.

In a video message shared via his Instagram account, Arinze expressed his concern over the ongoing social media trial of Bello, deeming it unnecessary. He emphasized the importance of the EFCC adhering to due process and allowing the law to take its course.

Arinze stated, “I have been observing the things that have been going on with the EFCC and Yahaya Bello saga and it has been quite dramatic. First, the EFCC came out with a lot of statements on social media and in the news about the bulged arrest of Yahaya Bello and of course, the amount of dollars he paid into his children’s school account. It’s not enough to say the money came from the government but if it’s substantiated, it’s damming.”
