Exploiting the power vested to recover all items allocated to erstwhile administration and to return them to the new government, the Bauchi state government has seized 22 vehicles from the four wives of the former governor of Bauchi state, Isa Yuguda.
This was made known via the chairman of the new government’s transition committee, Senator Mohammed Mohammed who spoke at the government house in the state yesterday.
He said: “we have so far, recovered a total of 22 cars from the wives of the former Governor, Isa Yuguda. We recovered 11 cars from his first wife, seven from the second wife and four from the third wife. We are yet to recover the remaining cars from his fourth wife who is currently out of the country.
“We will ensure that whoever is in possession of government properties will be forced to return them. We urge public servants and the general public, especially those involved in the disposal and allocation of the property in question to cooperate with the committee for the effective discharge of its assignment.”
In the mean time, the new governor of the state, Mohammed Abubakar, has vowed that all funds and property allegedly looted during the tenure of the immediate past administration are returned to the coffers of the state government.
