The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission- EFCC has invited former Governor of Benue State, Mr Gabriel Suswam, over alleged corruption during his tenure as governor.
The Spokesperson of the EFCC, Mr Wilson Uwajuren, confirmed this to journalists today.
Mr Suswam arrived at the anti-graft agency’s office in Abuja on Monday morning at about 10AM to answer questions relating to alleged corruption in Benue State when he was Governor.
Mr Suswam joined several other past state governors under investigation by the EFCC for alleged corruption during their times.
He was being quizzed at the EFCC office in Abuja over alleged graft in his state, at the time of this report.
Mr. Suswam’s arrest follows last Friday’s questioning of the former Benue State Commissioner for Finance, Omadachi Oklobia who was said to have also visited the agency’s office on related issue a week before his former boss.
EFCC had invited Oklobia, who served under Mr. Suswam, to defend the allegations of diversion of public funds, abuse of office, embezzlement and fraud in the Suswam years as governor of Benue state.
Mr Suswam served two terms from 2007 to 2015.
