Gabriel Suswam, the immediate past governor of Benue state, may face the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) a second time.

This is following a petition to the anti-graft agency on behalf of the Benue state government to commence a fresh probe against Suswam, This Day reports.

It was gathered that, Michael Gusah, the Benue state attorney general and commissioner of Justice signed the petition against Suswam as it was received by the EFCC at about 3pm on Monday, February 29, at the commission’s headquarters in Wuse II, Abuja.

According to a source who spoke to This Day, Gusah also attached the comprehensive report of the Justice Elizabeth Kpojime-led probe panel that investigated the administration Suswam to the petition.

The Benue State Government wants the anti- graft agency to look into the petition and initiate prosecution against the former governor, 51 others and 10 companies.

Suswam is currently facing a N3.1billion alleged fraud before a Federal High court in Abuja relating to the same issue raised by the Justice Kpojime led probe panel.

The report said Suswam and many of his appointees including civil servants who held key positions in his administration allegedly engaged in dubious expenditures running into billions of naira.

Governor Samuel Ortom had set up a judicial commission of inquiry in August 2015 to look into the financial engagement of Suswam’s administration.

Suswam was arraigned before a court in Abuja by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Wednesday, November 4 over allegations of N3.1 billion fraud.

The EFCC had at a resumed trial told a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja how Suswam alongside his commissioner for Finance Omadachi Okolobia, diverted over N3.1bn proceeds from the state shares sold during his tenure as governor of the state.

While, Janet Aluga, the Benue government house accountant recently disclosed how she took millions of naira to Suswam at the governor’s Lodge in Makurdi, from the Ministry of Finance, without following due process.

Suswam had dismissed the probe panel report as based on falsehood and speculation.
