The former Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulazeez Yari has defeated ICPC and AGF by securing a court protection order against the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) and the Attorney General of the federation AGF.
Daily Tells recalls that the former governor’s bank accounts in Polaris and Zenith banks were ordered frozen due the court order from High court that to freeze his account after his house was raided by a another anti-graft agency (EFCC) two weeks ago.
Justice Taiwo Taiwo, on Friday granted the ICPC’s request to freeze the ex-governor’s accounts.
He said the orders made on Monday can not affect the earlier order gave which is relating to only accounts in the two banks thereby asking both parties in the case to maintain status quo pending the hearing and determination of the substantive suit.
However, Justice Taiwo in his judgment 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.
