The immediate past Benue Governor Samuel Ortom is in the Makurdi office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) following an invitation.
Ortom arrived at the Makurdi zonal office of the anti-graft agency located at Alor Gordon Street around at 10 am on Tuesday.
It was gathered that the former Governor was invited over ongoing investigation into alleged financial misappropriation during his tenure.
The former Governor’s media aide, Terver Akase and Principal Special Assistant on Special Duties, Abraham Kwanhgu, were sighted with him.
“Former governor Ortom is currently at our Makurdi zonal office in Benue State. He arrived at about 10 a.m. this morning, and he’s still there now. He was invited over an ongoing investigation concerning alleged misappropriation of funds during his time in office,” a source said.
Efforts to reach the spokesperson for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, on the development proved abortive.
