EFCC Unfreezes Benue Govt’s Accounts

0

The Benue State says the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has unfrozen its bank accounts.
The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Samuel Ortom, Mr Terver Akase, confirmed this to Channels Television in an interview on Thursday. EFCC had frozen the accounts of the state domiciled in three banks on Tuesday, saying it was investigating alleged abuse of the state’s security votes.
Reacting in a statement the next day, the state government described the action as an alleged political witch-hunt aimed at frustrating Governor Ortom’s efforts after he left the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The statement read, “The action of EFCC is already having a negative impact on the running of government in Benue State. It is a move that will affect salaries, pensions and other sundry payments. The question we are asking is; why did EFCC not investigate the Governor’s security votes when he was still a member of APC?”
