In a recent court session before Justice James Omotosho of the Federal High Court, Maitama, Abuja, the amended charges were read to the defendants, with Ali Bello and Dauda Sulaiman pleading not guilty. Notably, ex-Governor Yahaya Bello and Hudu remain at large.

The charges revolve around the conversion of a substantial sum allegedly obtained through criminal breach of trust. Among the allegations is the purchase of a property in Abuja for N950 million, with transactions reportedly conducted in cash and dollars. Witnesses testified to the involvement of the accused parties in the property acquisition.

The EFCC is intensifying its efforts to address financial malfeasance and unlawful activities, seeking to bring those involved to justice. Stay tuned for updates on this developing case.
