The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ola Olukoyede, has said he will resign his position as the chairman of the  Commission if he fails to personally oversee the completion of the investigation of the former Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello.

The anti-graft boss in a statement with pressmen in Abuja condemned the act of Bello escaping arrest after he was involved in financial mismanagement in the state.

Olukoyede said as a sign of respect, he placed a call to the ex-governor to come to answer questions at the commission bordering on the transfer of Kogi State money to Bureau D’change dealers but Bello said EFCC should come over to his village.

The EFCC chairman cited an instance where the fees of Bello’s child schooling overseas needed to be paid, $750,000 was moved to a BDC by Bello’s cousin to make the payment.

He added that the arrest of the ex-governor would have been done in January but the agency had to await a court order first.

Following the order from the Federal High Court, a governor and over thirty policemen prevented the arrest but vowed that anyone involved would be arrested and face the law.
