The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), yesterday interrogated former Zamfara State governor, AbdulAzeez Yari, over his alleged handling of transactions relating the Paris Club Fund refund while he served as chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum, (NGF).
Yari was said to be facing questions over other allegations of corruption.
Spokesman of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed that the former governor was invited by the commission’s office in Sokoto.
“We extended an invitation to him; He has been with interrogators in our Sokoto office”, he said. However, he could not confirm whether Yari was released last night.
It is the second time that Yari was being interrogated by the agency this year, having appeared at the Lagos office in February.
