Suswam Heads For Court To Stop Probe

Former governor of Benue State, Dr. Gabriel Suswam, yesterday filed a suit at the state High Court to restrain his successor, Governor Samuel Ortom, from probing his administration.

It was gathered that the counsel to the former governor, Mr. Dave Iorhemba, filed Suswam’s suit, which contained about 10 motions supported by affidavit.

Confirming the development, a top official at the High Court told Daily Sun in confidence that the court actually received the writ and was immediately sent to the chief judge’s office for assignment to a judge.

“Yes, we have actually received the motion filed by lawyers to Suswam seeking the court to issue an order stopping the probe of his administration by the present government in the state and the file has been forwarded to the chief judge for the purpose of assigning the case to a judge.”
