Bauchi State government has seized a total of 22 vehicles in the possession of the four wives of former governor of Bauchi State, Isa Yuguda in a bid to recover all the properties of the state in possession of past government officials.
According to the state’s Chairman of the Transition Committee, Senator Mohammed Mohammed, who spoke yesterday at the Government House in Bauchi, the recovery of the vehicles was in tandem with the mandate of the committee to recover all items confirmed to have been allocated without following due process and return same to the government.
“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,” Mohammed said.
