Usman Ododo, the current governor of Kogi state, has paid a visit to his predecessor, Yahaya Bello, amid a massive security crackdown on the former governor’s Abuja residence by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) operatives.

Ododo arrived at Bello’s home around 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, accompanied by many security personnel and supporters denouncing the former governor’s home invasion.

It is not clear what the governor’s mission to his predecessor’s home is at the moment.

EFCC operatives had on Wednesday morning stormed Bello’s Abuja home located in Wuse Zone 4, in the Nigerian capital.

The EFCC had earlier dragged Yahaya Bello, his nephew Ali, one Dauda Sulaiman, and Abdulsalam Hudu before Justice James Omotosho of the Federal High Court, Abuja, in an amended charge in March 2024 over an alleged N84bn money laundering.

Reacting to the development, the ex-governor’s media office, in a statement, condemned the operatives’ actions while urging President Bola Tinubu to caution the EFCC.
