Group Condemns Gov, Ortom over Suswan probe
ARCHIBONG ESUENE, Makurdi
A group, Benue Coalition for Justice Equity and Fairness has condemned the decision of Governor Samuel Ortom to probe immediate past governor of Benue State Gabriel Suswam.
A statement signed by Peter Hwande, National Chairman of the association and Ogbole Alechenu, Secretary said, Governor Ortom has jettisoned pressing issues of governance in the state to witch-hunt Gabriel Susuwam.
The group maintained that the desperation of those behind the probe against Gabriel Suswam made them to hurriedly drag him to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) describing the decision as ill-conceived, an agenda which according to the group is capable of using the EFCC to massage their ego.
According to the group, the probe is inconsequential, inconsistent with the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and cannot withstand judicial security.
