Former Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Abubakar Tsav has expressed anxiety to defend whatever he told newsmen concerning Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State in September last year and urged the governor not to embark on any attempt to gag the press through litigations.
Ortom’s lawyers were said to have issued one week ultimatum to certain national dailies to retract their publications on their client, failure which they will be dragged to court.
However, Tsav told newsmen in Makurdi at the weekend that he is ready to defend whatever he said against Ortom in court.
“I am anxious to meet Ortom in court, I want to put him in the dock and ask him questions, everything I have said about him is true.
“I am sure of what I said and I am ready to defend it in court…when Ayo Fayose said many nasty things about Buhari, did Buhari take him to court? The man just want to gag the press in Benue state,” Tsav stressed.
Tsav who is currently Commissioner of Public Complaints Commission in Benue also called for investigation into the missing N300billion, which was recently disclosed by the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, stressing that it may have happened under Stella Odua, Ortom or Chidoka who were ministers in the ministry.
He accused Ortom of embarking on one-sided anti corruption war, a development which he said have prevented the governor from probing Dr Iorchia Ayu, who he said was given N700million contract for Idye canal but failed to execute the project.
The retired police commissioner also said the former senate president (Ayu) should be arrested if he is truly involved in the ongoing Dasukigate scandal as being reported in some quarters.
