Segun Awofadeji in Bauchi
Former Bauchi State Commissioner of Information and a political associate of former Governor Isa Yuguda, Alhaji Salisu Barau, has debunked the insinuations in some quarters that the house of his former boss has been sealed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
He said the controversial house was only being investigated by the commission.
Barau who was speaking in an interview with newsmen in Bauchi at the weekend while reacting to speculations that the house has been sealed by the anti-graft commission, declared: “For EFCC to commence investigation of Yuguda is not a surprise and as far as we are concerned, his house is under investigation and not sealed’’.
According to him, ‘’Members of his family that are inside the house wouldn’t have been there if it was sealed and as far as we are concerned, he has contributed his best to the development and progress of Bauchi State. I want to tell you that Yuguda is not an exception when it comes to the issue of investigation, especially for somebody that has been in government for some number of years.”
