The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Saturday, arrested a political party agent in Benue State with millions of naira
The agent claimed to be working for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Benue state, Emmanuel Jimeh.
The EFCC, which posted a picture of the seizure, said in a Facebook post that the suspect was arrested in Makurdi.
The post read, “At the North Bank Area, Makurdi, a man was caught with large bags containing lots of money. While trying to arrest him, officers of the Commission were attacked and vehicles vandalised. Information gathered confirms that the money belongs to Emmanuel Jimeh, the gubernatorial candidate of the APC in Benue state.”
When contacted on the telephone, Joe Abuku, a spokesman for Jimeh, promised to call back to provide information.
