Plateau State Governor, Caleb Mutfwang has directed security agencies to arrest those sponsoring libelous publications, claiming that Judges have received $5 million bribe for the nullification of his victory which is due to come up for a verdict in the Appeal Court, in a few days.

“I demanded a thorough investigation by security agencies to identify and apprehend those responsible for the libelous publication”, the Governor said on Friday in a statement signed by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Mr. Gyang Bere.

“I strongly condemned the baseless and defamatory allegations circulated by certain individuals, accusing judges of receiving a $5 million bribe for the nullification of my victory.

“I vehemently condemned the publication and attributed it to the deliberate actions of my detractors aimed at sowing discord between me and the esteemed judges and other constituted authorities.

“I distance myself from the false narrative, dismissing it as mere fabrications crafted by individuals who are being manipulated as pawns by the opposition party in the State”, Mutfwang said.

The Governor reaffirmed his unwavering support for the judiciary, warning those  disparaging the justices and respected leaders, to desist from their destructive activities immediately or face the severe consequences of their actions.
