Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has suspended the Chairman of Etsako East Local Government, Alhaji Aremiyau Momoh, for two months for misappropriating the council’s funds and low revenue profile.

The suspension of Momoh followed a petition signed by 10 councilors in which several fraudulent allegations were made against him.

Among the allegations were that the suspended council boss claimed to spend N7m on Sallah gift whereas only N2m was spent and failure to remit N67m collected from trucks taking cement from BUA Cement.
