The youths who are believed to be students from One of the tertiary institutions in the State, could not display their ‘bidden’ on the streets for fear of possible arrest by security agents.

Rather, the came to the Secretariat, considered as safe haven with folded banners and placards which they later unfolded to journalists, carrying messages of solidarity with ex- governor Yahaya Bello.

Addressing newsmen, the organiser, Comrade Yahaya Abubakar, operating under a body, “North Central Progressives Voice” , claims that the attempt to arrest Bello by the EFCC, if not checked, would tarnish the reputation of Tinubu administration.

EFCC’s action, Abubakar said, amounts to irresponsible and unconstitutional, if allowed unchecked, having cited a high court order against the EFCC moves.

The organiser of the protest, therefore called on President Tinubu to intervene what he referred to as a clear case of disregard for the authority and sanctity of the constitution and legal system by the EFCC.
