Orilade said, “What we fight is economic and financial crimes. Whatever allegations we have should be centred around economic and financial crimes.”

Yari  becomes the second  personality  whose home was  raided this year by  the  EFCC after his tenure expired.

The agency raided some properties allegedly owned   by the immediate past Imo State  Governor Rochas Okorocha recently.
