EFCC Arrests Ex-Gov Yari Over Alleged Fraud

Former Governor of Zamfara State, Hon. Abdulaziz Yari Abubakar has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

His arrest was necessitated over his alleged role in connection with the N84 billion fraud involving the former Accountant-General of the federation, Alhaji Ahmad Idris.

Yari was arrested at about 5pm on Sunday for allegedly benefitting the sum of N22 billion from the N84 billion which the former Accountant General was alleged to have paid to one Akindele.

The anti-graft agency also arrested one Anthony Yaro, who is the chairman and managing Director of Finex Professional – the company through which former Governor Yari allegedly benefited from the alleged fund.

It will be recalled that the former Governor Yari had last weekend clinched the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to contest for the Zamfara West senatorial election in 2023.

The Accountant General of the Federation, Mr Idris was earlier arrested over allegations of money laundering and diversion of public funds to the tune of N84 billion.

He has since been suspended from office pending the outcome of investigations.
