The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday said it will arraign former Governor of Benue Sate Gabriel Suswan over allegations bordering on money laundering to the tune of three billion naira.

The anti-graft agency on Tuesday said a nine-count charge had been filed against the former Governor last month at a Federal High Court in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

In a statement by the anti-graft spokesperson, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, the EFCC alleged that Mr Suswam and his former Finance Commissioner, Omodachi Okolobia, diverted proceeds of the sale of shares owned by the Benue State government and Benue Investment and Property Company Limited.

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.
