Ortom Claims Former Governor Wants To Make The State Ungovernable

In a bid to guarantee the state of security issues in Benue State, a former governor of the state, Gabriel Suswam, has been reported arrested by the Department of State Service, DSS, on Wednesday.

The former governor was arrested after the incumbent governor, Samuel Ortom, allegedly petitioned the DSS over the security situation in the state.

A source close to the governor who pleaded anonymity confirmed the arrest as well as the petition to Channels Television on Thursday.

The DSS had earlier arrested the former Governor in 2017, after it said it uncovered a large cache of arms and ammunition from a property allegedly belonging to him at number 44 Aguiyi Ironsi Way, Maitama-Abuja.

According to a statement by the DSS spokesman, Tony Opuiyo, last year, the DSS had been informed that some incriminating items were stashed in the boots of cars parked at the property.
