Have been dodging EFCC for 10months – Ortom  


The Governor of Benue State, Mr Samuel Ortom, on Monday said he has been playing hide and seek with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Ortom disclosed this during a media briefing in Abuja while calling on Nigerians to vote out President Muhammadu Buhari in the forthcoming election.

The governor said, “All of us should stand up and chase away that cabal because we did not elect any cabal. I am being persecuted because the cabal doesn’t like me. They do all sort of things and the EFCC has been chasing me and my staff for the past 10 months. I am not afraid and I have not done anything wrong.

“But they have been chasing me all over the place.”
