Why EFCC Is An Illegal Organisation – Yahaya Bello’s Lawyer | Read More

Mr. Adeola Adedipe, SAN, a member of former Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello’s legal team on Tuesday, described the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC as an illegal organisation.

Addressing the federal high court Abuja on behalf of Bello, Adedipe said the Federal Government did not consult the 36 States of the federation before it enacted the EFCC Act through the National Assembly.

He argued that section 12 of the 1999 Constitution, as amended, required the various Houses of Assembly of states to ratify the Act before it could become operative.

“This is a very serious matter that borders on the constitution and the tenets of federalism. It has to be resolved because as it stands, the EFCC is an illegal organization,” Bello’s lawyer said.
