JUST IN: #EFCC Verify Receipt of Bello’s $760000 Fees From American School—-Thecloudngr reports that the Nigeria EFCC has confirmed the receipt of Bello’s $760,000 fees from American School.

This online newspaper gathered that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has confirmed the refund of $760,000, which former Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, paid as advanced school fees for his children at the American International School, Abuja.

Confirming the refund, EFCC spokesperson, Dele Oyewale, stated, “The school has refunded the entire $760,000 to the EFCC’s recovery account.”

This Nigerian news platform initially reported that the American International School of Abuja requested “authentic banking details” from the EFCC for the refund of fees paid for the former governor’s children.

Bello purportedly paid $720,000 in advance as fees for five of his children, who are in Grade Levels 2 to 8 at the school, using Kogi State Government funds.

On April 17, EFCC operatives attempted to arrest Bello over an alleged N80.2 billion fraud, leading to a siege on his residence in Abuja. However, Governor Usman Ododo of Kogi reportedly arrived and took Bello away from the scene.

In a letter addressed to the Lagos Zonal Commander of the EFCC, the school revealed that $845,852 had been paid in tuition from September 7, 2021, to date. They indicated that the refundable sum was $760,910, deducting educational services already rendered.

The school requested an official written request with the EFCC’s authentic banking details for the refund, emphasizing that no further additional fees were expected for tuition.

Furthermore, the school stated that it would notify the anti-graft agency if there were any additional deposits by the Bello family. They also disclosed that Ali Bello had contacted the school on August 13, 2021, seeking to pay the family’s school fees in advance until the students graduate from High School.
