Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has apprehended Dr. Cletus Tyokyaa, who is the Director General of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship campaign council in Benue state for being in possession of new notes of N100,000.
The disclosure was made by Governor Samuel Ortom while briefing pressmen shortly after voting in his Gbajimba hometown in Guma LGA.
He said Tyokyaa was arrested by officers of the anti-graft agency who found the cash in his possession.
“I received report from the DG of our campaign that he had been arrested this morning by EFCC for having N100,000 on him. What is that? Are they the agent of destabilisation? It is a shame.
“Why should they pick up somebody because of N100,000? I want to tell the EFCC to release him immediately. I have more than N100,000 on me but I’m not buying votes and he was not buying votes,” the infuriated governor added.
The EFCC is yet to address the press on the matter, at the time of filing this report.
