Immediate past Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has honored the invitation of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for questioning over his stewardship.
Ortom drove into the Makurdi zonal office of the agency located at Alor Gordon street in the state capital at exactly 10:08am.
He walked straight into the building, the former governor’s media aide, Terver Akase, and Principal Special Assistant on Special Duties, Abraham Kwanhgu, were sighted with him.
He had not left the premises as of 11:25am when this report was filed.
Recall that Samuel Ortom on 27 May 2023, said he is not a coward that will run away from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) whenever his attention is needed.
Ortom spoke during his cabinet valedictory session held at the old banquet hall of Government House, Makurdi.
“Anytime you are invited by EFCC, don’t be afraid to go, as for me I’m not a coward to run away from EFCC, if they come for me I will follow them.
“I don’t have any investment in Europe all I have are in this state. If I have committed any crime let the person come and show me,” he said.
