The Benue State Government can now access its accounts with various banks where its funds are kept following the unfreezing of its account by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) on Thursday.
According to the Press Secretary to the governor, Mr Terver Akase, the state government got to know that its accounts had been unfrozen when it got calls from the banks that the state could now transact business.
He said there was no document served on the government by the EFCC to show that the accounts were frozen or unfrozen but added that on both occasions they were informed by the banks.
Akase alleged that the federal government and its agencies launched a witch hunt on the state governor over his defection from the All Progressive Congress(APC)
“As I speak to you several moves are being made to embarrass and intimidate the governor but this move will not work as governor Ortom led government remain transparent and clean and will not fall to any intimidation,” he said.
