EFCC Freezes Bank Accounts Of Benue State


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has frozen 3 bank accounts belonging to the Benue State Government.

This move comes after the commission accused the State Governor Samuel Ortom of ₦22 billion fraud.

According to the reports, the Chief Publicity Secretary to Ortom, Terver Akase, revealed the freezing of the state accounts.

The state government has insisted the ₦22 billion was used in the payment of security agencies to fight the herdsmen killings in the state.

Ortom has credited his departure from the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the reason he is being “singled out” and “persecuted” by the anti-graft agency.
