The All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers in Benue state House of Assembly that served impeachment notice on Governor Samuel Ortom of the state, have listed corruption allegations against the governor.

Premium Times reports that the lawmakers accused Ortom of misappropriating billions in public funds while state workers groan amidst unpaid salaries.

Naijahitplay gathers that the APC lawmakers were led by Terkimbi Ikyange, who was impeached as speaker last week by at least 22 members of the assembly.

Ikyange accused the governor of squandering N54 billion in state funds, N22 billion from security votes while N32 billion was from local government funds.

The allegations of corruption against the governor was denied by his chief secretary, Terver Akase, who called on President Muhammadu Buhari to call members of APC to order and save Nigeria from lawlessness.

He said: “The allegations are all lies and the attempt to impeach the governor remains illegal, null and void. We call on the president to prevail on SSS and police to stop attempt to truncate democracy and rather than being an accomplice.”
