The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Wednesday, overruled former Governor, Benue State, Gabriel Suswam, on his objection to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC’s tendered documents.

The presiding judge, Justice Okon Abang, also overruled the then Commissioner for Finance in his administration, Omadachi Oklobi’s objection to the documents tendered by the anti-graft agency.

Justice Abang, who ruled on the admissibility of the documents, said the objection of the 1st and 2nd defendants lacked merit.
