The Benue state Commissioner of Arts, Culture and Tourism, Mr. Sekav Iortyom, has been questioned by the state Police Command over the murder of a lecturer Mr. Wilfred Tersoo Tondo at the University of Mkar in Gboko. Recall on 11th August 2016, unknown gunmen killed Tondo at his official residence within the University of Mkar in Gboko local government area of the state. Going by reports, the late Tondo, a chairmanship aspirant on the platform of All Progressive Congress (APC) was shot around 4am while observing a Christian morning prayer with members of his family, thereby, fuelling suspicion that his death was politically motivated. The interrogation of the state commissioner may not be unconnected with allegation that he was not in good terms with the deceased, who was said to have been a preferred candidate of power brokers in the Buruku area, where both hailed from against the commissioner’s favourite candidate. Confirming the commissioner’s invitation, the state commissioner of police, Bashir Makama said he was invited but did not state the reason for the invitation.He however said the commissioner was not arrested or detained.
