''Agents of Satan from the pit of hell'' —FFK reacts to reports accusing Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello of fixing N20 bn state funds in a private account

Femi Fani-Kayode has come out to defend his friend, Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state who has been 

accused of fixing N20 billion of the state funds in a private account.

A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos on Tuesday, August 31, ordered that the Kogi state's salary bailout account domiciled in Sterling Bank Plc be frozen over a N20 billion loan obtained from the bank.

The EFCC had approached the court for an order in an ex-parte application brought pursuant to section 44 (2) of the Constitution and section 34(1) of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Act.

Counsel to the EFCC, Abass Muhammed, told the court that the order was necessary so as to preserve the ‘res’ and abate further dissipation of the funds in the account, noted that the 20 billion loan meant to augment the salary payment and running cost of the State Government was kept in an interest-yielding account with Sterling bank.

Reacting to the news, FFK in a post shared on his Instagram page this afternoon, said those peddling the ''slanderous falsehood'' against his friend and brother are ''agents of satan from the pit of hell''.
