MAKURDI â€” The Benue State House of Assembly has raised an alarm over large-scale fraud allegedly perpetrated against the government by managers of the government-owned proper-ties spread across the country.
Consequently, the House has set up a five-member ad-hoc committee to investigate what it described as a rape of the people by the said property managers.
This discovery has also forced the Assembly to reject the report of an earlier Committee on Verification of the stateâ€™s assets headed by the Majority Leader, Mr David Mwar, as lacking in merit.
The House had thrown away the Committeeâ€™s recommendations, Tuesday, stating that it did a shoddy job.
Chairman of the new five-man ad-hoc committee is former Majority Leader, Mr Hyacinth Nyakuma.
