THE former majority leader of the Benue State House of Assembly between 1999 and 2003 Timothy Iorchor has exonerated Governor Samuel Ortom and Senator Gabriel Suswam over alleged complicity in the killing of wanted militia leader Terwase Akwaza by the military.
Akwaza, popularly known as Gana, who had been on the wanted list of the military, was killed last week by soldiers from 4 Special Forces in Doma, Nasawara State.
