Court Grants ICPC’s Request To Freeze Accounts Belonging To Ex Gov. Yari




A request by the Independent Corrupt Practises and other Related offences Commission seeking to freeze bank accounts owned by the former Governor of Zamfara State, Abubakar Yari, has been granted by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

Justice Taiwo Taiwo, while delivering his judgement, in an ex-parte motion by the ICPC, ordered that the accounts in Polaris and Zenith banks with funds in United States dollars and Nigerian naira, be frozen until the affected individual gives a reason why the accounts should not be frozen.

Justice Taiwo ordered ICPC to publish the order within 14 days in a national daily and for the affected parties to show cause why the funds would not be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.

Meanwhile, Naija News recalls the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission also recently stormed the Zamfara residence of the former governor over an on-going investigation related to him.
