Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Sunday raided the residence of the immediate-past governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, in Talata Mafara, about 100km away from the state capital, Gusau.

Witnesses said the operatives, numbering more than 20, came in seven vehicles, including a bus for the operation that lasted for five hours.
DAILY NIGERIAN gathered that the operatives arrived at the residence around 6pm and left around 11pm.

It is however unclear whether the anti-graft operatives have found anything incriminating during the raid.

Sources said the governor and his family were not in the house during the raid.





Locals who trooped to witness the operation, booed the anti-graft operatives, chanting “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar…”

Last month, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, in Zamfara State, Sani Shinkafi, expressed resolve to a court to compel the EFCC to probe the tenure of Mr Yari.

Mr Shinkafi said he had written a petition to the EFCC but no action was taken by the anti-graft agency.

He said he would get “an order of mandamus to compel the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Mr. Ibrahim Magu, and the Commission to commence investigation into the alleged looting by a former governor of the state, Abdulaziz Yari, amounting to over N251billion”.

Mr Shinkafi alleged that Mr Yari left liabilities from ongoing projects to the tune N151,190,477,572.02.

“Unremitted national housing fund deductions from salaries from 2016 to 2019 stands at N1,431,645,305,99. The liabilities under the ministry of education which involves external examinations and institutions such as Crescent University Abeokuta, Al-Hikma University Ilorin and Key Science Academy Abuja stands at N2.812.172.155.

“The committee further discovered that out of the two billion naira approved by the Yari administration for the payment of backlog of gratuity owed to retired workers in the state, only retired permanent secretaries were paid to the tune of only N400,000.00, a whopping sum of one billion six hundred million is unaccounted for.

“We call on the commission to investigate, prosecute and convict former Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, over the misappropriation, diversion, siphoning and financial recklessness of N251billion as alleged by the Transition Committee Chairman headed by the immediate past Deputy Governor of the Zamfara State Malam Ibrahim Wakkala,” Mr Shinkafi said.

Mr Shinkafi also accused Yari of going against due process in the award of rural electrification contracts to the tune of N25 billion to a company.

He also said the former governor awarded construction of township roads across 14 local governments of the state to the tune of over N75 billion.

Mr Shinkafi also said the contract was jointly awarded and funded by the 14 local government councils and state government by the past administration without recourse to due process.
EFCC is yet to speak on the raid.

Lol.

I only see two probable reasons for the invasion:

First, either it's punishment for the role Yari played in the loss of Zamfara,

Or two, that Yari is with the wrong divide of the cabals.

The narrative now is because buhari and oshomole have a case against Yari. No longer that APC members are untouchable. Maybe the man who was bragging that he petitioned EFCC over Yari sounded like buhari in your ears while the transition chairman who incidentally was the immediate past deputy governor of the state that alleged that the governor siphoned N251b of the state sounded like oshomole.

Good one there!

I want to ask one question: the bandits troubling Zamfara, why have they not deemed it fit to go to this man's house, Rob it and burn it to the ground? Are they cowards?

See the local people booing EFCC. Poverty has a way of gradually eating away people's brain till their is nothing left but an empty skull.
