12 exotic cars found at Yari’s residence – EFCC

271

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says they uncovered 21 exotic cars during a Sunday raid at the Talata-Mafara residence of Abdulaziz Yari, former governor of Zamfara state.

The anti-graft agency also searched the houses of Jafaru, Yari’s brother, and Sha’aya Mafara, his intimate friend.

The former chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) is currently being investigated for alleged questionable payment of N19 billion from the London-Paris Club refund; N35 billion spent on internally displaced persons (IDPs); ecological and stabilisation fund and how he incurred N151,190,477,572.02 liabilities on ongoing projects.

According to The Nation, Yari is expected to honour the invitation of the anti-graft agency in order to provide answers to some questions connected to the ongoing investigation.

“The onus is on Yari to explain how he came about the exotic vehicles; whether or not he declared them in his Asset Declaration Form; and if these vehicles were in his exit Asset Form as a former governor in May,” the source said.

“Once he is able to justify the acquisition of the vehicles, the EFCC has no problem with Yari. Otherwise, he has a question to answer.”
