Barely two weeks after the Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom defected from the ruling APC to the PDP, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has frozen the account of the State government.

According to media reports, the anti-graft agency gave the order late last night.

Confirming the development, , Chief Press Secretary to Governor Samuel Ortom said it was part of agenda to cripple the state.

EFCC claims the government accounts were frozen  on the premise that the Governor’s security vote was being investigated.

“Yes, it is part of the evil agenda to cripple the state. It is only in Benue that the EFCC is probing the security vote of the governor,” Terver Akase said.
