Immediate past governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswan, said on Sunday that he was not arrested in London for beating his wife, as widely reported across several media.
According to his lawyer, P.H. Ogbole, who spoke in Abuja, friends and family members of the former governor should disregard the reports as Suswam was not arrested.
The former governor also threatened to take legal action against those behind the falsehood, saying publications alleging that he beat his wife were trying to smear his good image.
Reports in the past week have claimed that the former governor was arrested in London by the Metropolitan police for allegedly beating his wife.
