American International School of Abuja Returns Yahaya Bello’s $760,910 to EFCC


The American International School of Abuja has refunded $760,910.84 to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), stemming from an investigation into former Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello’s financial activities.


Bello, currently facing prosecution by the anti-graft agency over alleged misappropriation of N80.2 billion state funds, was implicated in depositing $845,852 in school fees for his five children.


Despite vehemently denying the accusations, Bello stands accused of embezzling funds from the Kogi State Government coffers. His defiance against the allegations and threats of legal action underscore the gravity of the situation.


A recent court order demanded EFCC Chairman Ola Olukoyede’s appearance to address allegations of disobeying court directives, adding another layer of complexity to the case.


Documents submitted by EFCC reveal that Bello’s payments, spanning a 14-year period from 2021 to 2035, were intended to secure education for his children at the American International School.

The refund process unfolded in two installments, with an initial return of $720,000 followed by an additional $40,910. Despite retaining a portion of the fees for services rendered, the school’s compliance with EFCC signals cooperation in ongoing investigations.


The saga surrounding Bello’s financial transactions continues to unfold, shedding light on alleged corruption within Nigerian political circles. As legal proceedings progress, the repercussions of such actions reverberate across the nation’s governance landscape.
