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

Yari, a former chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF), is  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.

“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,” an EFCC 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.”
