A former Governor of Benue Sate, Mr. Gabriel Suswan will be arraigned today over allegations bordering on money laundering to the tune of three billion naira, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has announced.

EFCC spokesperson, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, said Mr Suswam and his former Finance Commissioner, Omodachi Okolobia, allegedly diverted proceeds of the sale of shares owned by the Benue State government and Benue Investment and Property Company Limited.

A nine-count charge had been filed against the former Governor last month at a Federal High Court in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

The agency said the offences leveled against the former Benue Governor was punishable under section 15 (3) of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act of 2011 as amended in 2012.
