Yahaya Bello: Actor Segun Arinze advises EFCC

Nollywood veteran, Segun Arinze has advised men of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to follow due process as it prosecutes the immediate past Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello.

The former governor and his nephew, Ali Bello were accused of laundering N80 billion belonging to the North Central state.

However, the actor condemned the ongoing social media trial of Bello by the anti-graft agency.

In a video message shared on his Instagram page, Arinze said, “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.

“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 haven’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 decision. 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.”
