Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, on Monday, arrested a former Benue state governor, Gabriel Suswan, over alleged corruption during his tenure as governor.
Mr. Suswam governed Benue state between 2007 and May 2015.
He was being quizzed at the EFCC office in Abuja over alleged graft in his state, at the time of this report.
“He was invited by the EFCC in connection with ongoing corruption investigation in Benue state,” Wilson Uwajuren, EFCC spokesperson, told the media.
Gabriel Suswan left the country on the morning of 29th May, 2015 as President Muhammadu Buhari was being sworn by 8am on British Airways flight to London out of what many people see as fear of arrest. In the early days of President Buhari, many politicians in the former administration took off to Europe or the United States out of fear of impending arrest for wanton corruption of the past administration.
