Court Stops ICPC, AGF From Seizing Yari’s Properties
Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday stopped the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) from seizing assets and properties belonging to the immediate past Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulazeez Yari.
In a ruling on Monday, Justice Taiwo also restrained the ICPC and AGF from interfering with Yari’s enjoyment of the rights enshrined in sections 34, 35, 37, 41 and 43 of the Constitution.
The Judge also ordered parties in the case to maintain status quo pending the hearing and determination of the substantive suit.
Recall that Justice Taiwo had on Friday granted the ICPC’s request to freeze Yari’s accounts in Polaris and Zenith banks.
The Judge, however, stressed that Monday’s order does not affect the earlier one.
