Follow due process in prosecuting Yahaya Bello – Actor Segun Arinze urges EFCC

Nollywood actor Segun Arinze has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, or EFCC, to follow due process in prosecuting Yahaya Bello, the immediate former Governor of Kogi State.

The anti-graft agency is prosecuting Bello, his nephew Ali Bello, Dauda Suleiman, and Abdulsalam Hudu on a 19-count accusation of money laundering totaling N80 billion.

Arinze reacted in a video message uploaded on his Instagram account, saying Bello’s continuing social media trial was pointless.

He asked the EFCC to follow due procedure and let the law take its course.

He 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 bother 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 bring 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.”
