Police Command in Benue have arraigned one Mrs Christiana Iortim, 38, before a Makurdi Upper Area Court for alleged criminal breach of trust.
The Police Prosecutor, Insp. Veronica Shaagee told the court that the case was transferred from Area Command to Criminal Investigation Department Makurdi through a letter No. AR3100/BNS/ACM/VOL.10/14.
Shaagee said that the case was reported through a written petition by one Moses Tsegba of New Kanshio Layout, Makurdi dated May 8, 2020.
She explained that the petitioner Mr Tsegba between Dec. 6, 2019 and Jan. 28, 2020, gave Iortim N3,347,500 cash to buy rice and soya beans for him.

The prosecutor said all efforts by the petitioner to recover his money proved abortive.
Shaagee said the accused contravened section 313 of the Penal Code Laws of Benue State 2004.
