Samuel Ortom, the immediate past governor of Benue state, has been released from the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after hours of intense interrogations.

One of the aides of the former governor told newsmen that his boss was released at about 7:30 pm on Tuesday.

TECHNOCRATMEDIA had reported how Ortom had appeared at the zonal office of the EFCC in Makurdi on Tuesday morning over misappropration of funds during his tenure as governor of the state.

His party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Benue said while Ortom is not the first former governor to be interrogated by EFCC, his case is “remarkably distinct for the lack of rancour and acrimony which usually attends such appearances”.

“The party is satisfied that ex-governor Ortom’s conduct is a clear reflection of his having no skeletons in his cupboard,” the party spokesperson said in a statement.
