The former governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, has been put on a watch list by the federal government.

A circular was seen by our reporter on Thursday night, in which the Nigeria Immigration Service instructed security agencies to arrest Bello immediately.

Allub Times reports that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) declared Bello wanted on Thursday.

The commission has also requested that all security agencies keep an eye on Bello to prevent him from leaving the country by any means of transportation.

This action is taken to stop the former governor from avoiding arrest for money laundering charges.
