The country home of Yari, who was also former chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), was raided Sunday night by operatives of the anti-graft.

According to Orilade, EFCC visited the former governor’s residence in respect of ongoing investigation.

“What we fight is economic and financial crimes. Whatever allegations we have should be centred around economic and financial crimes,” he said.

The former governor becomes the second notable personality to be raided this year by EFCC after his tenure expired.

A similar raid was conducted on the properties of former governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo.
