The Kogi State Government has asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to come clean on the reason behind its “unrelenting persecution and media trial” of the immediate past Governor of the state, Yahaya Bello, saying that the world would be eager to know why the Commission is trying so hard to find what is not missing.

The state government insisted that its funds were not missing, and called on the EFCC to desist from mentioning the name of Kogi in its ongoing “persecution”, allegedly orchestrated by some political actors around the Presidency bent on destroying the image of the former Governor.

“We believe that this ignoble agenda is unknown to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu who trusted those people with power with the hope that they will use it judiciously for the greatness of our nation. Unfortunately, they have decided to use the privileges given to them as tools for political vendetta,” the statement, signed by the Commissioner for Information in Kogi State, Kingsley Fanwo, said.

“The amended charges in which the name of the former Governor was mentioned are false, frivolous, fictitious and far from the truth. They are cooked-up charges that signpost their desperation to call a dog a bad name in order to hang it. The intention was to sensationalize the whole scenario and promote a media war against the former Governor and other officials of Government.
