Former Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Abubakar Tsav, has vowed to reopen the petition he filed against former governor of Benue State, Senator George Akume, before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Tsav said that at his age, he does not fear death and would pursue the case against Akume to the letter and ensure that he gets justice.
He told Nigerian Pilot in Makurdi, the state capital at the weekend, that his decision to reopen the petition against Akume was because the anti-graft agency is now seemingly living up to its duty.
The retired police boss, who described the EFCC under former President Goodluck Jonathan as a “toothless bulldog” said that his previous petition before the agency against Akume was thrown out because of the attitude of some senior ranking personnel of the outfit.
He said: “I still have with me authentic documents against George Akume, some of the documents were given to me by those working with him then, those that are sensitive, I have kept in the bank.
“The personnel of EFCC at a time compromised and swept some of the issues raised against Akume under the carpet and the period of former President Jonathan did not help matters, but now that the agency is living up to public expectations, I’m going to revisit those petitions against Akume,” Tsav said.
Tsav was a thorn in the flesh of the administration of Akume between 1999 and 2003 when he was governor of the state.
He described Akume as the “major problem of Benue State”, adding that “Akume caused and is still causing big problems and injustice to the people of Benue.”
Tsav debunked insinuations that he never criticised the immediate past governor of the state, Gabriel Suswam, saying, “throughout the eight years of Suswam, nobody availed me with any document,” adding, “aside from that, the boy always listened to the counsel of the elders.”
