The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has frozen the account of Benue State government.
Confirming the development to newsmen today, Terver Akase, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Samuel Ortom described it as an agenda to cripple the state.
“Yes, it is part of the evil agenda to cripple the state. It is only in Benue that the EFCC is probing the security vote of the governor,” he said.
GREENNEWSNG.COM learnt that the anti-graft agency gave the order yesterday night.
Recall that Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom had earlier dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress and joined the Peoples Democratic Party.
