Former Bauchi State Governor, Isa Yuguda

The Bauchi State Government has seized 22 vehicles belonging to the state from the wives of the immediate past Governor, Isa Yuguda.

The Chairman of the Transition Committee, Senator Mohammed Mohammed, who disclosed this on Thursday in Bauchi, said that the recovery of the vehicles from the wives of the former governor was in tandem with the mandate of the committee to recover all items confirmed to have been disposed or allocated without due process.

Mohammed 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 have 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’s 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 properties in question to cooperate with the committee for the effective discharge of its assignment.”

Governor Mohammed Abubakar had after assuming office vowed to adopt all measures within the ambit of the law to recover all funds allegedly looted including cars and properties illegally distributed by officials of the last administration.
