EFCC arrests ex-Zamfara gov, Abdulaziz Yari over alleged role in Accountant-General’s N80bn fraud



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Sunday arrested the former Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari.

The former governor was arrested at his Abuja residence in connection with the EFCC investigation of the Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, for alleged N80 billion fraud.

Idris was arrested by the commission on May 16 for allegedly raking off the funds through bogus consultancies and other illegal activities using proxies, family members, and close associates.

Ex-governor Yari was arrested 24 hours after winning the All Progressives Congress ticket for Zamfara West senatorial district in the 2023 general elections
