Celebrated legal luminary, Mike Ozekhome, has fervently refuted claims suggesting he urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to apprehend two former governors of Zamfara, Abdul’aziz Yari and Bello Matawalle.

This rebuttal stems from a dubious article circulating on an online platform under his name, alleging his demand for explanations regarding EFCC’s pursuit of the former governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello.
