‘It’s shameful’ Activist, Joe reacts after EFCC declared Yahaya Bello wanted

Human rights activist Comrade Israel Joe has said it is shameful for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to declare the former governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, wanted.

In a statement he signed and made available to DAILY POST on Monday, he said, “It tells Nigerians that EFCC has not grown to a point of intelligence investigations.”

He said the EFCC should know his hideout and smoke him out and not make a mess of the collective sensibilities of Nigerians.

“Yahaya Bello is not a small child who could just be concealed somewhere.

“They should work with the DSS and Police to get his actual location and arrest him.

“They expect Nigerians to give them information? Is Yahaya Bello in the streets or village? They know where he is but lack the courage and morale to go get him,” he added.

He noted that the security agencies do not work in synergy pointing out that “It creates more danger to our teeming democracy. Some persons with immunity have always prevented security agencies from doing their jobs.”

“The current FCT minister Nyesom Wike when he was governor prevented DSS from arresting a judge in Rivers State and also prevented the DSS from arresting a former NDDC woman boss.

“In the same vein, we saw how the Nigerian Army blocked the DSS from arresting former Governor of Central Bank Godwin Emefiele at the airport. This is a shame for our democracy,” he said.
