The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has released a former Zamfara State governor, Abdulaziz Yari.

Family sources confirmed the development to DAILY NIGERIAN, saying the former governor was released on Thursday evening.

Mr Yari was arrested in his Maitama, Abuja residence over alleged complicity in the N84 billion fraud involving the suspended Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris.

DAILY NIGERIAN reports that Mr Idris was released on Wednesday night after spending weeks in detention.

Mr Yari was arrested alongside the managing director of a firm known as Finex Professional.

The former governor is said to have benefitted to the tune of N22 billion out of the N84 billion which the suspended AGF is being accused of diverting.
