Bobrisky didn’t get same privileges EFCC accorded Yahaya Bello – Bwala

Former spokesperson for Atiku Abubakar Presidential campaign organisation, Daniel Bwala, has slammed the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for its ‘double standards’.

He called out the EFCC for giving preferential treatment to former governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, while denying same to crossdresser, Idris “Bobrisky” Okuneye, who was recently sentenced to jail.

Bwala faulted the anti-corruption agency for its alleged disregard for the rule of law, describing the recent press conference by the commission’s chairman, Ola Olukoyede as a “media trial”.

The anti-graft agency had accused Bello of allegedly misappropriating the sum of N80 billion and other allegations. Also, the EFCC boss vowed to resign if he failed to prosecute the ex-governor.

Reacting to the development while on Arise TV, Bwala Olukoyede was conducting public discussions akin to a courtroom trial which was indirectly a way of giving Bello a chance to escape.

The political analyst added; “What happened was like a prosecutor in court doing his opening address in the view of prosecuting the matter. And who was the judge yesterday? it was the pressmen.

“That same privilege, Yahaya Bello does not have to also state his own case. So, we can call it a complete trial by the media.

“This is one of the many reasons why people tend to ask the question, is the commission actually intending to prosecute, or is the commission indirectly giving an opportunity for the accused to escape?”.
