Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue State has resolved to punish Terver Kakih, the man who leveled allegations of certificate forgery against him.
This, he said, would serve as deterrent to others who may want to contemplate such action in future.
Reacting to the Supreme Court judgment last week, which dismissed the forgery case brought against him by Kakih, Governor Suswam said he has already instructed his lawyer to file legal action against his accuser.
He stated that he will get the court to punish Kakih for trying to smear his image even as he noted that petition writing has become the norm among Tiv people.
“They did it to minority rights crusader, the late Joseph Tarkaa and to the second republic governor Aper Aku”, but he is “determined to put a stop to such wicked actions by Tiv people”.
