The Ebiraland Youth Coalition has issued a stern warning to the federal government, urging them to take proactive measures to ensure the safety of former Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello.

In a press statement signed by Coordinator Mr. Fache Moses, the coalition expressed concern over alleged plots by individuals in influential positions, along with collaborators from other ethnic groups in Kogi State, to endanger Bello’s life and tarnish the reputation of Ebiraland.


The withdrawal of Bello’s security detail by both the Department of State Services (DSS) and the Police, despite a standing court order restraining the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) from arresting him, raised suspicions of collusion among powerful interests aiming to harm Bello.

The coalition emphasized their readiness to defend Bello against harassment, even resorting to bare-handed defense if necessary, should the intimidation persist.

“The action of the Police and DSS has now made the former governor vulnerable and the youths of our land will be left with no other options than to defend our own even if it’s with our bear hands if the harassment continues unabated.”

Calling on President Bola Tinubu to intervene and halt the unjust harassment by the EFCC, the coalition highlighted the need for the commission to respect legal processes and seek lawful means to address any grievances, rather than resorting to questionable actions.

The coalition cautioned youths from other ethnic groups in Kogi State against using social media to vilify Bello and the Ebira ethnic group, warning that such actions could jeopardize the peace currently enjoyed in the state.

Reflecting on past events involving the EFCC’s treatment of former Governor Abubakar Audu, the coalition reminded Kogi East youths of the united stance taken by Central youths in protesting against Audu’s humiliation.

They stressed the importance of solidarity and mutual respect among all ethnic groups within the state.
