Asset recovery committee set up by the Benue state Governor, Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Alia, has stormed one of the property belonging to the immediate past Governor Samuel Ortom and carted away exotic cars.
Recall that Governor Alia, in June 2023, set up a committee, headed by Hingah Biem to, among other things, ascertain all assets of the government including lands, vehicles, houses, furniture and other machinery, with a view to recovering them.
Our correspondent gathered that the committee, on Tuesday afternoon, stormed the ex Governor’s automobile workshop located along Makurdi/Otukpo road where they took away the vehicles.
Unconfirmed sources said the committee sent towing truck to cart away the vehicles after attempts to drive them away failed.
As at the time of filing this report, the incident was still ongoing and no committee member was available for comments.
