Immediate past former governor of Benue State, Dr. Gabriel Suswam, has denied reports that he battered his wife in London, over which he was briefly arrested and detained by the police.
The former governor also denied that his wife, Yemisi, looted the state treasury while he was governor of the state.
Suswam, in a statement personally signed by him, described the.....
reports, which went viral weekend, as the handiwork of elements bent on tarnishing his image for political reasons.
According to an online medium, the former governor was arrested by the Metropolitan Police Domestic Violence Officers, for battering his wife.
He was allegedly booked into the London detention centre for several hours before a judge set a £5,000 bail bond, which he met, before he was released.
‘I wasn’t in London’
However, describing the report as fictitious, Suswam denied ever going to London with his wife, saying he had been in Germany on vacation with her.
He also challenged authors of the said report to name the street and address of his said house in London.
