Abdulaziz Yari, the immediate past governor of Zamfara, on Friday, August 16, 2019, prayed the Federal High Court Abuja, to direct the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to unseal his property located at Maitama, Abuja.

Yari, in an exparte motion brought by his Counsel, Mahmud Magaji, SAN, said the EFCC sealed the property contrary to the provision of the law.

Magaji said that the application was to ensure that each government agencies operates within the confines of the law.

He urged the judge ”to invoke his power to direct the EFCC to go and remove the red inscription pasted in the house.”

”And we urge your Lordship to direct parties to maintain status quo pending the determination of the suit,” Magaji said.

Taiwo Taiwo, the presiding judge, however, adjourned the matter till August 19, 2019, for ruling.
