A source privy of the development said: “The raid of Yari’s home was in connection with the ongoing investigation of the former governor. He has some issues to clarify on his tenure. “Most of the issues have been in public domain for a while, especially the alleged questionable payment of N19 billion from the London-Paris Club refund to some consultants by the NGF and mismanagement of Zamfara state’s resources. “We are not pronouncing him guilty but we want him to appear for interrogation on some of the issues we have highlighted for investigation.”

The source said such a raid was allowed especially if the target was of political interest. He added that they had to also search the houses of the ex-governor’s brother Jafaru Yari and his intimate friend Sha’aya Mafara.

“For instance, our operatives uncovered 21 exotic vehicles in his compound. Yet, we have an allegation that a part of the N35 billion budgeted for IDPs in Zamfara was used to buy choice cars. “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. “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,” the source added. According to the source, some suspects are already on trial while a few others escaped abroad.

The anti-Fakorede group is made up of members and leaders of the ruling party who have hinged their protest on claims that Fakore’s father had defected to the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) and worked against the success of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), at the elections.

The group, which comprises party leaders, elders and women urge lawmakers not to screen or confirm his nomination adding that his nomination  negates the sharing arrangement by the leaders to cover the interest of all the regions and zones of the area.
