Embezzlement scandal: I did not use N12m to settle Audu Ogbe, others - Hon. Paul Adoyi, Ogbadibo Caretaker Committee Chairman

Written By Idoma Television on Thursday, September 3, 2015 | 11:37:00 AM

The caretaker committee chairman of Ogbadibo LGA of Benue State, Hon. Paul Adoyi has described as baseless and untrue the report making the rounds on social media that he embezzled N12m belonging the council.
According to the allegation, Adoyi alongside top All Progressives Congress chieftain, Chief Audu Ogbe siphoned N12m from the LG treasury.

The report further alleged that Adoyi admitted using the money to settle those who brought him to power, with particular preference to Ogbe.
However, when DAILY POST contacted the LG boss on Thursday, he described the allegation as laughable and untrue.
“If N12m gets missing from the local council, will it stand?

“There’s no iota of truth in that report. The person who concocted that story is faceless. The person was only out to tarnish the image and reputation of our father, Chief Audu Ogbe.
“They can go to the Bureau of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affair and find out. That is where we take voucher for clearance before any payment.

“The voucher for payment of May was sent prior to my appointment on July 6.
“My detractors are only out to distract me from the development going on in Ogbadibo.”
Also speaking with our reporter, the acting Director General, Services and Administration to the council, Hon. Chris Ogbe described the story as ‘fat lie.’

He said, “looking at the whole situation in Benue State, if a local government can just embezzle N12m in the midst of the financial crisis, it is practically impossible.
“The story is unfounded and has no base. They just want to dent the image of Chief Ogbe and Hon. Adoyi.

“As we speak now, the LG council is on top of the situation now to unravel where the story came from,” Ogbe added.
