The outgoing governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, on Sunday, handed over to the incoming governor, Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Alia. The event took place at the Old Banquet Hall of Government House, Makurdi. In his speech, Ortom said his administration was handing over N187bn debt which is made up of salary arrears, loan, contractual obligations and others.


. A yet-to-be-identified woman has breathed her last after hearing the news of her son’s death. The late son, identified as Christian Ugbede Abuka, was said to have died in an auto crash while returning home from Kwara State where he had gone for his National Youth Service Corps documentation.


 Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency have intercepted a consignment of 32 pieces of Improvised Explosive Devices allegedly being taken to bandits’ camp in Niger State, bordering the Federal Capital Territory, ahead of the May 29 presidential inauguration, and that of new administrations across the country.
