EFCC should follow due process on Yahaya Bello – Segun Arinze

Prominent actor Segun Arinze has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to ensure the law takes its full course by ensuring fairness and legal propriety in the case against former Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello

EFCC should follow due process on Yahaya Bello – Segun Arinze

The Governor, with his nephew and two others, are facing allegations of laundering N80 billion in a 19-count charge.

Weighing into the discourse, Arinze in a viral video criticised the social media trial of Yahaya Bello, labeling it as superfluous.

Expressing his observations, Segun 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 damning.

“I’m not saying Yahaya Bello is innocent or guilty. I don’t even have much details about that. What I’m bothered about is social media. If social media hasn’t dragged you before, you won’t understand. Too many opinions on social media with all the feeds coming out from the EFCC and generally, it just brings a lot of negativity on both sides.

“What I’m saying is, social media parliament is not the Nigerian judiciary. It can’t make any decisions. As I am made to understand, the case is already in court. So my advice is that EFCC should follow due process. Let the law take its course. That’s my personal opinion.”
