The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has said it raided the residence of former Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari, following the allegations of economic and financial crimes levelled against him, the News agency of Nigeria reports.
Acting spokesman for the anti-corruption body, Tony Orilade, said this in an interview with NAN in Abuja on Monday.
NAN reports that the EFCC raided the home of the former chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum on Sunday night.
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.
