/> Benue governor denies ordering security aides to beat up lady in church (pics) | Welcome to praizeblog
 

A certain Blessing Idoko was
reportedly beaten to pulp by
Gov. Samuel Ortom’s security
attaché at the Mercy Land
Parish of the Redeemed
Christian Church of God in
Makurdi, during a church
service today, Dailypost
reports.
The Governor was said to have
worshipped at the church
today. Upon sighting the
Governor, Idoko reportedly
approached him and “implored
him to have mercy on the poor
people in the state, particularly
civil servants, including her
mother.”
Allegedly irked by her
effrontery, Gov. Ortom was
said to have signaled his
security details to take her
away from his presence. The
security men reportedly
pounced on her, shoving and
slapping her as the Governor
walked away.
But when contacted, the Chief
Press Secretary to the
Governor, Terver Akase,
debunked the story, describing
it as a calculated attempt to
tarnish the image of the
Governor.
He said: “I saw the facebook
post and went outside the
church to investigate and I
discovered that the incident
did not take place in the entire
time that the Governor and his
entourage spent during the
thanksgiving service.
I asked every security person
on duty within the church
premises including those who
accompanied the Governor. I
also inquired from other people
who were outside the church
who might have seen the
reported beating but no one
could confirm the incident.
If anything took place as
reported, then such an incident
occurred some hours before
the Governor arrived, in which
case, he cannot be blamed.
Governor Ortom did not order
the beating or harassment of
anyone at the church.”
