We Have Not Declared Ex-Governor, Bello Matawalle Wanted’’ – EFCC Debunks Rumour.


TRIXX NG reports that the Economic and Financial crimes commission (EFCC) has denied declaring former governor of Zamfara state, Bello Matawalle wanted.

In a statement shared on the commission’s social media page, EFCC described the information making rounds as incorrect.

Read statement below:

The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to a report, entitled, Alleged N70b Fraud: EFCC Declares Ex-Zamfara Gov, Matawalle Wanted, which appeared in the Sunday Tribune of June 18, 2023 and purports that the Commission had declared a former Zamafara State governor, Bello Matawalle wanted and requested the Department of State Service, DSS, to arrest him, “anywhere he is seen”.

Without prejudice to the case involving the former governor, the report is incorrect as the Commission has yet to declare Matawalle wanted or solicit the assistance of any Agency, including the DSS, to effect his arrest.

The Commission has a standard procedure for declaring persons wanted and communicating the same to the public, not through faceless “security sources”.
